Play the Get-to-Know-Your-Liver Game!
Presented by Matias Caldez

Liver regeneration is a complex process, but very important in treatments for many diseases involving the liver, including diabetes, alcoholic liver cirrhosis (watch that drink!) and liver cancer. Local scientists have developed a game to help people understand how livers regenerate and what problems they encounter. Join molecular biologist Matias Caldez in this special talk and gaming session to get to know your liver better!
