In general, research projects at LIVR aim to better characterize the different liver cell types in healthy and pathological conditions, and to gain a better insight in the mechanisms of liver regeneration and the pathogenesis of liver fibrosis.
The LIVR team investigates:
Long term objectives are:
The LIVR laboratory offers Flow Cytometry Service, using a BD FACSAria cell sorter (2006, first generation, upgraded to FacsAria IIu in 2014). The system has 3 lasers for excitation: UV-laser (355nm), Blue laser (488nm) and Red laser (633nm) and 11 fluorescence detectors. We offer support for the experimental setup, operation of the system and analysis of data using FlowJo software.
