Lessons from the Liver: Uncovering Novel Approaches for Regenerative Medicine

Wednesday, November 28th, 6:30-8:00pm at Aeronaut Brewing Company
(14 Tyler St, Somerville, MA 02143) (directions)

The liver is the only organ in our body that has the ability to regenerate itself. While this remarkable feature of the liver has been appreciated for decades, it is still unclear why the liver can do this while other organs cannot. Dr. Knouse’s laboratory at the Whitehead Institute, an independent non-profit biomedical research organization located in Cambridge, aims to understand what endows the liver with this unique regenerative ability, with the ultimate goal of one day conferring this capacity to other organs in the setting of injury or disease. Please join us for what promises to be an exciting discussion!

Please note that this event is on WEDNESDAY, not Thursday as our events usually are at Aeronaut.

We hope to see you then!
