Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease is one of the most common liver diseases in the world. Understanding how certain factors affect the progression of fatty liver disease — such as diet and the types of bacteria that live in the stomach — helps us better tailor therapies for those most at risk for liver damage. University of Chicago Medicine researchers are internationally recognized for their study of gut bacteria, intestinal inflammation and the roles they play in liver fat build up.

If you’re interested in participating in our research, your doctor can work with you to find a UChicago Medicine clinical trial.
