The Translational and Basic Liver Disease Research program
supports a wide range of scientific proposals that cover broad topics, such as
cellular and molecular biology of the liver; developmental biology and
regeneration of the liver; bile and bilirubin physiology and pathogenesis of
cholestasis; liver cell injury, drug-induced liver injury (DILI), repair, and fibrosis; inflammation of the
liver; and liver bioengineering and imaging.
Furthermore, disease-specific proposals that improve the understanding of
pathophysiological mechanisms and treatment of specific liver diseases or liver
conditions are also supported by this research program.
