A Biorepository of Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells from Subjects with Liver Disease


About this study

The purpose of this study is to develop stem cells from cells within patients’ skin. Stem cells are a unique type of cell capable of converting into multiple other adult cell types. The stem cells will later be converted to liver cells and used to better understand liver disease and help develop treatments.
