Dr. Bansal joined the faculty at Mount Sinai in 2001 after completing Gastroenterology Fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania. In 2002 she became the Transplant Hepatology Fellowship Director, leading one of the largest transplant hepatology fellowships in the United States.  While remaining clinically active, she has also developed an NIH-funded basic research program focusing on understanding underlying molecular mechanisms of liver fibrosis/cirrhosis in an effort to develop novel anti-fibrotic therapies.  Her current research interests focus on how HIV may promote hepatic inflammation and fibrosis as well as novel treatments for Non-Alcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH). She became the Director of Translational Research in the Division of Liver Diseases in 2013 and is the principal investigator in a number of clinical trials for the treatment of Hepatitis C and NASH. Since 2015 she has also served as the Chief Medical Officer of Mount Sinai Care LLC and Deputy Chief Medical Officer for Mount Sinai Health Partners, the population health platform the entire Mount Sinai Health System.  In this latter role, Dr. Bansal has the opportunity to translate findings from research/clinical trials to address population health needs in an ever-changing healthcare landscape.
