Our research focuses on understanding the mechanisms by which hepatitis viruses enter the liver and how they persist to evade host innate and adaptive immune responses. Development of multi-cellular systems comprising hepatocytes and non-parenchymal liver cells have enabled us to find new pathways that regulate viral replication. We are exploring the impact of viral (HIV) and bacterial co-infection on HCV pathogenesis and the role persistent HBV and HCV replication plays in the development of hepatocellular carcinoma.
