NIDDK’s Dr. Jay Hoofnagle

Dr. Jay Hoofnagle will give the Astute Clinician Lecture as part of the NIH Director’s Wednesday Afternoon Lecture Series on Nov. 12 at 3 p.m. in Masur Auditorium, Bldg. 10. He will present “Past and Future Therapy for Hepatitis C.”

Hoofnagle is director of NIDDK’s Liver Disease Research Branch and is responsible for the administration and award of research grants on liver and biliary diseases. He also is a senior investigator in the Liver Diseases Branch of NIDDK’s intramural program and conducts clinical research at the Clinical Center on liver diseases, including viral hepatitis, nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (fatty liver disease), drug-induced liver injury and autoimmune liver diseases. Hoofnagle is a graduate of the University of Virginia and earned his M.D. degree at Yale Medical School.

The annual Astute Clinician Lecture was established in 1998 through a gift from the late Dr. Robert W. Miller and his wife, Haruko. It honors U.S. scientists who have observed unusual clinical occurrences and, by investigating them, have opened an important new avenue of research.
