Meet our Team
Dr Bradley Freilich, M.D.

Our History

When Dr. Freilich first began practicing as a Hepatologist in the late 1990s, his primary focus was treating patients with Hepatitis C. He found that these patients were still experiencing liver damage after treatment.

Driven by a desire to improve the accessibility and range of patient care, Dr. Freilich founded KCRI to help explore new and emerging treatments.

Over the past 20+ years, Dr. Freilich and his team at KCRI have conducted more than 330 clinical trials, focusing on more than 20 different disease areas.  KCRI has been instrumental in the processes it takes to bring new treatments to the public. Without physicians like Dr. Freilich and places like KCRI, many treatments may never receive FDA approval or be available to you.
