Kara Wegermann
Medical Instructor in the Department of Medicine

My research focuses on genetic predictors of progression in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). I have investigated predictors of clinical progression in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease using the Duke NAFLD clinical database and biorepository. I find the genetic and modifiable risk factors for liver disease fascinating, particularly because of the potential for clinical intervention before cirrhosis or HCC are established.
