Dr. Fox's major research interests involve the study of experimental therapies for treating patients with liver disease.

His work has been continuously supported by grants from the NIH and the DoD for over 20 years.

Dr. Fox did a research fellowship in Immunology with Baruj Benacerraf at Harvard Medical School and a surgical transplant fellowship with Dr. Thomas Starzl at the University of Pittsburgh. Prior to moving back to Pittsburgh in 2008, Dr. Fox was senior associate dean for research and MD-PhD program director at the University of Nebraska Medical Center.
