Asian Liver Center at Stanford University School of Medicine

About Asian Liver Center at Stanford University School of Medicine

he Asian Liver Center at Stanford University is the first non-profit organization in the United States that addresses the disproportionately high rates of chronic hepatitis B infection and liver cancer in Asians and Asian Americans. Founded in 1996, the center addresses the gaps in the fight against hepatitis B through a four-pronged approach of collaboration, advocacy, research, and education & outreach (CARE). The ultimate goal of the Center is to eliminate the transmission and stigma of hepatitis B, and reduce deaths from liver cancer and liver disease caused by chronic hepatitis B.

Through public and private partnerships, the health disparities associated with chronic hepatitis B and liver cancer can be overcome. The Asian Liver Center has a long history of building collaborative networks with a diverse array of cross-sectoral partners to address hepatitis B.


In order to successfully eradicate hepatitis B, we must unite together and speak out against this silent killer. The Asian Liver Center works on the local, statewide, national and international levels to promote hepatitis B and liver cancer awareness.


The Asian Liver Center conducts translational research by which our scientific research is translated into practical applications and policies to improve human health. We are committed to finding novel approaches to increase the effectiveness of diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment through the development of a comprehensive liver cancer research program.

Education and Outreach

The key to winning the fight against hepatitis B and liver cancer is prevention, and prevention begins with outreach and education. Since its founding in 1996, the Asian Liver Center has been dedicated to serving the Asian community through a variety of outreach and education programs.


Youth Leadership Conference Conference Executive

June 2018 - August 2018 Stanford, CA
“I really loved that they hand the project completely over to you and your co-conference executive. You are responsible for actually executing almost every aspect of the 4-day overnight conference. Preparing for an event involving 100 students, 25 staff, and 10 keynote and workshop speakers benefited my networking, organization, and leadership skills. You also work alongside a team of approximately 10 other interns that you form really close friendships with and you learn so much from their projects as well!”
