Liver Function and Transplants The body's largest and most complex internal organ, the liver, is a jack of all trades. It produces needed proteins, helps digest food and cleans your blood. Join us Monday {tomorrow} for a science café edition of the sound of ideas where we'll learn about how the liver functions and how transplantation can save patients whose livers fail. We'll also visit with a Northeast Ohio man whose life was saved through through transplantation. Join us, Monday at 9 on 90.3.




Dr. Lisa Yerian, Liver Pathologist and Medical Director of Continuous Improvement, Cleveland Clinic
Dr. Kevin Mullen, Hepatologist, MetroHealth
David Grier, Two time liver transplant patient
