About the Session

The 2020 Hans Popper lecture reviews the cellular and molecular mechanisms of liver regeneration upon toxic injury, and how these mechanisms change in disease, mainly cancer. Learn how one lab combined animal and human organoid models, how to recapitulate key aspects of liver development and regeneration in vitro, and potential applications of these models in personalized medicine.

Learning Objectives:

  • Review the literature on liver organoids derived from healthy donors and cancer patients
  • Review current knowledge on new cellular models that can be amenable for personalized medicine
  • Review their knowledge on liver regeneration, in particular, duct-mediated hepatocyte regeneration
