Samuel French is a liver pathologist and scientist who has been on faculty at the UCLA Department of Pathology since 2002. Dr. French earned his B.A. in Biophysics at U.C. Berkeley and M.D. and Ph.D. in Biochemistry at the University of Pittsburgh. He completed his residency in Pathology at UCLA as well as fellowship in gastrointestinal/liver pathology. He was a postdoctoral fellow at UCLA where he worked on lymphomagenesis. He is a recipient of the Boyer-Parvin Postdoctoral Recognition Award and Cure Named New Investigator Award.  Dr. French studies hepatitis C viral mediated hepatocarcinogenesis, primarily focusing on a proteomic approach to determine how specific viral proteins subvert normal hepatocyte signaling. He is also interested in identifying gene expression changes seen in early hepatocyte dysplasia.
