Stevenson-Lerner/Saldarriaga LabFighting to Prevent Liver Disease and Cancer in Texas and Beyond

The Stevenson/Saldarriaga Lab team is actively involved in several grant-funded translational research projects including chronic hepatitis C (HCV) and other infectious diseases, steatotic liver disease, and autoimmune hepatitis.   Their laboratory studies the role of the hepatic immune response, including macrophages and lymphocytes, in the development of fibrosis and liver injury.  Using custom-designed algorithms that include deep learning and artificial intelligence, the team combines clinical and histological information, architectural context, and molecular data to better understand the hepatic microenvironment and predict disease risk.
