Dr. Stuver's research has focused on virus-associated disease and malignancy, especially those related to hepatitis C virus and human T-lymphotropic virus type I infections. She was the principal investigator of a community-based cohort study in Japan investigating viral and nonviral risk factors for progression of hepatitis C virus infection to liver damage and hepatocellular carcinoma. She currently collaborates with Dr. Lisa Fredman on her studies of the effects of stress among older caregivers and non-caregivers. Dr. Stuver also is a Senior Research Scientist in the Department of Quality and Patient Safety at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, where she is involved in projects related to assessing the quality of care.
