Welcome to the Schiff Center for Liver Diseases at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, one of the premier hepatology research institutions. We are focused on developing treatments and cures for cirrhosis, hepatitis B and C, and liver and biliary tract diseases as a whole.
At the Schiff Center for Liver Diseases, we are dedicated to providing our patients with compassionate care while pursuing the most challenging problems in hepatology. Through our research in basic science, academic inquiry and clinical trials, we hope to benefit the health of our patients and improve the state of liver diseases in society at large.
Through the support of our community partners and generous donations from patients, we are committed to our research. With an estimated 5 million Americans with chronic hepatitis C, research for treatments is more important than ever before. Our Center is engaging in the most exciting and innovative developments in liver disease like interferon-free antiviral treatments and combination therapy to provide the best options for our patients.
On this site, you will find information about the areas of research that we are currently involved in, how to get in contact with our staff, and ways that you can help further our cause.
