Research focus:
Hepatitis C infection

The goal of my research is to understand the natural history of hepatitis C and to eradicate the infection.

My research will make a difference because it promotes the cure of hepatitis C in all infected Nebraskans.

The best advice I've ever been given is to marry my wife, Mary.

Three things you may not know about me
