Biography

Dr. Feld’s research is focused on the diagnosis and treatment of chronic viral hepatitis. His leading role in the development of oral direct-acting antiviral therapies for Hepatitis C (HCV): therapies that are now standard of care for the treatment of HCV. Additional work led by Dr. Feld showed that rather than treating patients who received HCV infected organs after transplant, he could minimize risk for viral transmission prior to transplantation. This work has substantially increased the transplant donor pool by allowing organ donors infected with HCV to participate in organ donation. In 2018, he received the American Society for Clinical Investigation Distinction for Medical Research given to researchers under the age of 50 who have had significant impact in their field. Dr. Feld serves as the Co-Chair within the Gastroenterology Division at UHN. He is also the research chair for the Toronto Centre for Liver Disease.
