Project

Extensive characterization of different human liver progenitor cell populations (FWOAL687)

In this project we will use different isolation techniques, well known for their capacity to isolate LCPs (=Liver Progenitor Cells) from mice, and compare the cell populations obtained from human adult explant livers and pediatric donor livers.
