COOPERSTOWN – Dr. Karn Wijarnpreecha, who is researching liver disease, has been awarded the E. Donnall Thomas Outstanding Research Day Presentation Award, named in honor the former Bassett physician who won the Nobel Prize.
Wijarnpreecha, who is completing his medical training at Bassett, is investigating possible links between nonalcoholic fatty-liver disease, scarring of the liver and low muscle mass, and whether any link is consistent across ethnicities. If so, “interventions to strengthen muscle mass may reduce the burden of NAFLD and advanced fibrosis,” the researcher said.
