    Dr. DeLeve's clinical interests include general gastroenterology, colon cancer screening, irritable bowel syndrome, drug-induced liver disease. Her research interests include the role of liver sinusoidal endothelial cell in liver injury recovery and liver fibrosis and drug-induced liver injury.

    Born in New York City and raised in the Netherlands, Dr. DeLeve obtained a PhD in Pharmacology from the University of Toronto after receiving her medical degree from the Erasmus University of Rotterdam. Following her residency at the University of Michigan and fellowship at UCLA, Dr. DeLeve joined the Keck School of Medicine as an Assistant Professor in 1990.
