Research focus: Hepatitis C virus-driven inflammation in liver pathology and hepatocellular carcinoma.

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) is a major cause of chronic liver disease, including chronic hepatitis, cirrhosis, and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) worldwide and poses a significant global health threat. Lipid accumulation in the liver, termed hepatic steatosis is a significant risk factor for development of HCC in chronic HCV patients independently of other known risk factors, which suggest the possibility that amelioration of hepatic steatosis may prevent HCC. The project rely on basic research, in vitro and in vivo models, advanced cellular imaging and unique biobanks to study mechanisms that drive disease progression. The project aim to increase our understanding of factors driving development of severe liver disease, which is fundamental for developing interventional and therapeutic strategies.
