LiSyM network (RWTH Aachen University Hospital - Department of Internal Medicine III) ; Chronic Liver Disease Progression (LiSyM-DP - Pillar II) (RWTH Aachen University Hospital - Department of Internal Medicine III) ; LiSyM Scientific Leadership Team (RWTH Aachen University Hospital - Department of Internal Medicine III)
Chronic liver diseases (CLD) progression leads to cirrhosis, often cancer, and ultimately to organ failure and death. Because of the complexity of this scenario, a Systems Medicine approach is chosen to develop strategies to better characterize progression and resolution of fibrosis. Pillar II aims to define key molecular mechanisms and structural changes in tissue architecture during the progression of CLD by visualizing and quantifying at a cellular level, tissue and organ scale.
Day-to-day science within the LiSyM is overseen and directed by the the LiSyM Scientific Leadership Team. This coordination team comprises the pillar coordinators and additional LiSyM members, and ensures smooth interaction between multi-skilled groups, often working in different institutions and across significant distances within Germany.
