Biobank Fatty Liver Disease Tissues and Their Exploration in Microarrays



August 27, 2020

Presenter: Maciej Czerwinski, Ph.D., SEKISUI XenoTech Director of Consulting

This ADME 101 discusses biobank tissue and its research applications. The Research Biobank was established to preserve, characterize histologically, and distribute a diverse selection of samples from normal and diseased organs. This 20-minute mini-webinar features:
- Research Biobank tissue preparations and characterization
- Featuring stages of steatosis and steatohepatitis with history of alcohol use or not, fibrosis, diabetes, pediatric, etc.
- Attributes of fatty liver disease tissue
- Microarrays for fatty liver disease research
- Benefits of tissue over hepatocytes or subcellular fractions
- Applications for microarrays
