About this study

The purpose of the Hepatic Tissue Research Registry is to establish a local program to procure resected liver tissue and to gather critical patient and research information that will be utilized to develop a comprehensive biomedical database. This Registry data will be made accessible to scientists at Mayo, researchers outside of Mayo who have collaborations with Mayo researchers and to further biomedical and clinical research in liver biology, toxicology, cell transplantation, liver support therapy, and pathology.
