Edward Doo, M.D.

Program Director, Division of Digestive Diseases and Nutrition

Current Responsibilities and Activities

As a program director for the Liver Diseases Research Branch, I administer a basic research grant portfolio that encompasses liver injury, repair, fibrosis, and inflammation; clinical research and clinical trials; fatty liver disease; the genetics of liver diseases; viral hepatitis and infectious diseases; and pediatric liver diseases.  I encourage research proposals that advance our knowledge of liver disease pathophysiology on a cellular level that can be translated to improve our understanding of liver diseases and lead to improved diagnosis and treatment of the underlying liver condition.

I am a project officer or scientist for studies in pediatric liver transplantation, hepatitis B, fatty liver disease, and acute liver failure.
