My laboratory focuses on understanding the growth and proliferation of liver progenitor cells. These cells are capable of restoring liver function upon transplantation to an injured liver. By studying these cells, we hope to gain insight into the mechanisms that promote or inhibit liver stem cell engraftment and expansion. This knowledge could lead to new methods to improve the clinical success of liver cell transplantation and provide insight into the development of liver cancer.
