  • According to Bruce Korf, M.D., Ph.D., chair of the department of genetics, and director of the Heflin Center for Genomic Sciences at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, the glut of genetic information that will be used to inform treatment decisions will require additional education of clinicians, especially since a sizable cohort received their genetics training before the genomic age.

  • "If someone has hepatitis C and does not know it, it could be doing damage to their liver," says Michael Saag, MD, professor of medicine and director of the Center for AIDS Research at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. He is also co-chair of the Infectious Diseases Society of America's HCV Guidance panel.
