Research Interests

I serve as a resource for several multi-site clinical consortia funded by the NIH including: the Childhood Liver Disease Research and Education Network (ChiLDREN) combining the former Biliary Atresia Research Consortium (BARC) and Cholestatic Liver Disease Consortium (CLiC) which is a prospective database containing clinical information, blood and tissue samples from children with neonatal liver diseases to facilitate research in these important problems, one on management strategies for infants, children, and adolescents with acute liver failure (PALFSG), a patient database and treatment trial capturing the spectrum of fatty liver disease in children (NASH CRN), a pediatric treatment and database to study hepatitis C in children (PEDS-C), the Hepatitis B Consortium to study hepatitis B in children, and Studies of Pediatric Liver Transplantation (SPLIT) to study liver transplantation in childhood.
