Distinguished NIH Investigator

The Department of Internal Medicine will celebrate its inaugural Research Day on Tuesday, April 7th, 2020.

Research Day is a celebration and showcase of the research achievements of the Department’s faculty, residents and students. The program will feature a plenary lecture, poster sessions, oral presentations and a reception.

The Department warmly welcomes Dr. Harvey Alter, MD, MACP Distinguished NIH Investigator Emeritus, as this year’s plenary speaker. Dr. Alter has played a key role in the discovery of two hepatitis viruses, namely hepatitis B virus (HBV) and the non-A, non-B virus, later designated the hepatitis C virus (HCV). In long-term prospective studies, Dr. Alter helped define the natural history of NANB/HCV infection and proved its frequent progression to chronic hepatitis and its evolution to cirrhosis and liver related mortality.
