Dr. Gomez Salinero is interested in curing end-stage liver disease. His research focuses on creating liver cells from stem cells that can be effectively integrated into their new home: the injured liver. To overcome challenges in making these cells functional and long-lived, he is creating liver scaffolds that mimic the environment of developing liver cells. This research will inform the development of liver regeneration therapies which could serve as an advantageous alternative to transplants for patients with liver failure.
