The Liver Clinical Trials Research Group is dedicated to effectively turning basic research from "bench" to "bedside" with a strong emphasis on clinical research. We are always conducting research studies to evaluate and advance the science of liver transplantation, and the care of transplant patients.​

Current research areas include:

  • Immunosuppression drug therapeutics and monitoring
  • Physiological complications – Diabetes, Obesity and Cardiovascular related
  • Quality of care research – Identifying approaches to improve your care processes with our best medicine practices
  • Hepatitis C virus antiviral therapies
  • ​OrganOx Metra Device- This technique uses a device that preserves and keeps the donor liver healthy outside the body, mimicking human physiological functions before being transplanted.​
