Research Overview

The WT1+ mesothelium contributes to the hepatic stellate cell population during development, and after fibrotic liver injury in the subcapsular region; loss of WT1 also influences liver parenchymal development. We aim to characterise the role of WT1 in hepatic stellate cells in fibrotic and non-fibrotic liver injury and regeneration.
