Arthur Kim, M.D. is the Director of the Viral Hepatitis Clinic in the Division of Infectious Diseases at Massachusetts General Hospital and Associate Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School. He received his medical degree at Harvard Medical School and trained in internal medicine at MGH and infectious diseases at MGH/Brigham and Women's Hospital. He expresses a longstanding interest in those living with HCV, especially in special populations such as acute infection, prisoners, post-transplantation, and HIV co-infection. He currently is co-PI or co-investigator of NIH-funded studies examining the immunology and immunogenetics of HCV infection. Dr. Kim serves on the AASLD/IDSA committee that provides online guidance at http://hcvguidelines.org. He focuses on HBV, HCV, and HIV/HCV co-infected patients and especially welcomes referrals of those suspected to have early or acute infection and/or with a history of drug use. Dr. Kim also has many years of experience with inpatient transplant infectious disease and outpatient travel advice.
My research interests are related to hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection in special populations. I have three primary areas of focus:
1. HCV in immunosuppressed humans, including coinfection with HIV-1 and post-transplantation. My interests are in cell-mediated immunity and HCV viral evolution in collaboration with Georg Lauer, Todd Allen2. Immunology of acute HCV, in collaboration with Georg Lauer of the Gastrointestinal Unit
3. Acute HCV in the MA prisons. As project leader of a U19 NIH Center Grant, I am studying acute HCV in the Massachusetts State Prisons in collaboration with Barbara McGovern at the Lemuel Shattuck Hospital and the Department of Public Health
4. Immunogenetics of HCV infection, in collaboration with Georg Lauer, Ray Chung of the Gastrointestinal Unit, and Mark Daly of the Broad Institute

A new study suggests that massive underreporting may occur within the system set up by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to estimate the incidence of acute hepatitis C virus infection.
