Dr. Norah Terrault is a hepatologist or liver specialist who is recognized internationally for the treatment of viral hepatitis and liver transplantation. Her research includes the study of viral hepatitis and its progression and treatment, especially in liver transplant patients. Her research includes several clinical trials related to preventing and treating chronic hepatitis C and B. Her studies in this area have been presented to the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases, the leading organization for research in liver disease.

Terrault completed medical training at the University of Alberta and specialty medical training in Internal Medicine and Gastroenterology at the University of Toronto, both in Canada. Her post-doctoral fellowship in hepatology and viral hepatitis was completed at the University of California, San Francisco while earning a concurrent master's degree in public health from the University of California at Berkeley. She joined the medical staff at UCSF Medical Center in 1997.

My research focuses on the natural history and treatment of hepatitis C virus (HCV) and hepatitis B virus (HBV), particularly in special populations, including those undergoing liver transplantation. Work in progress addresses the natural history of post-transplant disease and specific therapies to prevent infection or modify HCV and HBV disease progression and loss of grafts from recurrent disease.

Our virological analyses are focused on characterization of viral mutations that occur in liver transplant recipients receiving antiviral therapies and assessment of the effect of these variant viruses on the natural history and severity of disease post-transplantation. Knowledge of these factors may allow improved organ allocation by identifying subsets of patients with HCV recurrence in liver grafts who would be favorable or unfavorable candidates for retransplantation.
