Article Abstract

Antibodies and liver transplantation

Authors: Vivian McAlister


A few years ago, I had an opportunity to collaborate with Professor Haitao Zhao and Dr Ruoyu Miao of the Peking Union Medical College Hospital (PUMCH). To witness their superior clinical and research programs would have been reward enough for a visit to Beijing, but I was also blessed to meet Professor Yilei Mao. After I had observed him complete complex liver surgery at PUMCH, Professor Mao informed me of plans to start a new high quality journal dedicated to the science of liver disease and nutrition. I knew it would be a game-changer. Therefore, I was greatly honored to be invited to guest-edit a special issue of the journal.
