The Indiana Center for Liver Research (ICLR) at Indiana University School of Medicine fosters scientific connection and collaboration among investigators in the field of liver pathobiology. Center’s labs are based at the Biotechnology & Research Training Center (L3) and the Richard L. Roudebush Indianapolis VA Medical Center. These facilities conduct critical research in partnership with other physicians, scientists and trainees at IU School of Medicine and around the world.
Led by Gianfranco Alpini, PhD, the Indiana Center for Liver Research focuses on delivering high-quality research on cholestatic liver diseases, hepatocellular carcinoma, alcohol-induced liver damage and non-alcoholic liver damage. These devastating liver diseases target thousands of Americans each year inducing fibrosis, cirrhosis, liver failure and, ultimately, liver transplantation.
