Liver Collection Study


This is a study of individuals older than 18, undergoing abdominal procedures in which the liver is accessible, and are amenable to liver samples being collected during their surgical procedure, with the option to participate in a specialized scan that can provide information on liver health, stiffness, and fat content. This study is trying to figure out how senescent (aging) cells in the liver are related to an individual's health status and better understand the association between these cells and different metabolic diseases.
