As the Medical Director for the Adult Liver Transplant Program at Yale, I am a board certified specialist in Transplant Hepatology who helps in the medical assessment and care of patients seeking liver transplantation and those in need of post liver transplant care. I am also an investigator in the NIH sponsored Acute Liver Failure Study Group and have experience in the management of patients with acute liver failure. In the area of metabolic liver disease, in particular for disorders of copper metabolism, I participated in the writing of guidelines for the diagnosis and treatment of Wilson disease. I also serve as an advisor to the Wilson's disease association and participate as an investigator in clinical trials for patients with Wilson disease.
