Second research line

Print 

A second research line focuses on bile duct complications, which frequently occur following liver transplantation. By combining clinical research with animal models, we aim to increase our knowledge of the pathophysiology of this complication, and try to find strategies for bile duct repair. Specifically, we are exploring whether improvement of organ quality prior to transplantation by machine perfusion reduces the risk of bile duct complications, particularly of extended criteria donor livers.
