Welcome


Research

Liver failure is the 12th leading cause of death in the U.S. Our goal is to generate pure populations of human liver cells from embryonic and induced pluripotent stem cells, thereby providing a source of liver cells for transplantation into patients-in-need. We have shown that embryonic stem cell-derived human liver progenitors can engraft the injured mouse liver, regenerate human liver tissue in vivo, and partially improve survival.
