A new scaffold for liver regeneration has been characterized and published in the International Journal of Biological Macromolecules this week. LiverThe liver is an indispensable organ located in the upper right abdominal cavity. It may be the most complex organ in its function, playing an important role in the body’s metabolism, particularly in proteostasis. The...
