Espen Melum, head of the "Experimental Hepatology" group at the Research Institute of Internal Medicine, under the Division of Surgery, Inflammatory Diseases and Transplantation, was appointed "Researcher of the Month" for March 2018 by the South-Eastern Norway Regional Health Authority (Helse Sør-Øst RHF).
Melum's research group studies why inflammation occurs in the bile ducts, which in turn can lead to liver failure. His work is presented in a feature article published on the home page of Helse Sør-Øst.
