Dr. Chung completed his B.A. at Harvard College and his MD from Yale University School of Medicine. He completed a residency in Internal Medicine and a fellowship in Gastroenterology and Hepatology at the Massachusetts General Hospital.
Dr. Chung’s focus has been fundamental and translational research in HCV infection.

In this regard his research has made important contributions to the current understanding of hepatic pathogenesis of coinfection.
ESTABLISHED IN 2011 by ECOR and the MGH Research Advisory Council, the MGH Research Scholars program provides five years of unrestricted funding to give innovative investigators the flexibility to pursue projects that may lead in unexpected directions. Supported by philanthropic gifts, the program expanded from the first group of five recipients to eight scholars in 2012.
A research consortium based at Massachusetts General Hospital has been awarded $15 million from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases to investigate how the hepatitis C virus resists suppression and clearance by the immune system.
Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) researchers are investigating a new way to block reproduction of the hepatitis C virus &ndash; targeting not the virus itself but the human genes the virus exploits in its life cycle.
