Revolutionizing global health through innovative liver research
The liver is a central metabolic organ that coordinates the healthy functioning of the heart, brain and kidneys. Backed by a transformative $104 million gift, the largest publicly shared donation for liver research in U.S. history, we are leading innovative investigations that will reinvent the way we care for patients with liver disease and educate future physician-scientists.
