Collaborative research between the Centenary Institute and Royal Prince Alfred Hospital has been recognised with a prestigious award.
Dr Avik Majumdar, a staff specialist transplant hepatologist at RPA Hospital, is among six recipients of the 2019 Gilead Australia Fellowship Program, which awarded a total of $250,000 for these six research projects.
Dr Majumdar has been collaborating with several Centenary researchers on the project, including Head of the Liver Enzymes in Metabolism and Inflammation Program Professor Mark Gorrell, Head of the Liver injury and Cancer Program Professor Geoff McCaughan, and Dr Hui Emma Zhang.
The group is working to validate an alternative test for people with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), to understand whether a patient is at risk of developing more severe disease, and requires further treatment.
Congratulations Dr Majumdar and your collaborators at Centenary on this significant achievement!
