What made you decide to become a hepatologist?
I became a hepatologist because it was an emerging new speciality in the 1960s.
Who was the teacher you admired the most?
Jacques Caroli and his discovery of congenital dilatation of the intrahepatic bile ducts, now known as Caroli's disease, inspired me in my clinical work.
Which research paper (by another person) influenced you the most?
The first paper by Starzl, on liver transplantation.
What is the most important fact that you have discovered?
In my early days on therapeutic practice, I realized that therapy should be based on medicine. This is now known as evidence-based medicine. One example of this is the re-introduction of therapeutic paracentesis.

Not having been introduced to basic science earlier in my career.
What is your unfulfilled ambition?
To learn to play a musical instrument.
What is your greatest regret?
Having had to live my youth during a dictatorship.
How do you relax?
By reading and listening to music.
