A new model of liver regeneration
Harvard Stem Cell Institute scientists at Boston Children's Hospital have new evidence in mice that it may be possible to repair a chronically diseased liver by forcing mature liver cells to revert back to a stem cell-like state. The researchers, led by Fernando Camargo, Ph.D., happened upon this discovery while investigating whether a biochemical cascade called hippo, which controls how big the liver grows, also affects cell fate.
