    Dr. Yuan is a transplant hepatologist specializing in caring for patients with chronic liver diseases, hepatocellular carcinoma, and pre-/post liver transplantation. She completed her internship and residency training in Internal Medicine at Keck USC School of Medicine, where she further finished gastroenterology fellowship training. After that, she took an extra year advanced training in transplant hepatology at University of Colorado, Denver.

    Dr. Yuan’s clinical research interests include Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, autoimmune hepatitis and outcome of liver transplantation. She has authored several articles in peer-reviewed journals on various topics in liver disease and liver transplantation. Dr. Yuan's research activities include searching and validating diagnostic markers and prognostic makers in nonalcoholic steatohepatitis, liver targeting of anti-fibrotic therapy, and the role of PGAM5 in hepatic cell death- using the model of acetoaminophen-induced liver injury.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
