UCLA scientists receive $2 million grant to improve quality of donor livers for transplant
Date:8/27/2013

ltured cells and then moving on to animal models and, ultimately, human liver tissue. Their goal is to validate novel molecular targets that predict donor liver quality and transplant survival.

The project is based on extensive preliminary data and promising early findings, Kupiec-Weglinski said.

"Our project has the potential to result in a significant paradigm shift, opening up the possibility of developing new ways to improve donor organ quality and allow use of otherwise unusable and discarded marginal livers," he said. "If we succeed, it will have a major and direct impact on organ transplantation worldwide."
