Research Summary

Dr. Vilarinho's main research goal is to use human genetics and genomics to advance our understanding of liver function in health and disease, with a potential impact in the development of new diagnostic and therapeutic tools as well as predictive biomarkers. I would be pleased to work with highly motivated trainees at all levels (undergrads, medical students...) who are interested in advancing the knowledge and treatment of devastating liver diseases in children and adults.
