UAMS Researcher Receives Funding From Liver Diseases Foundation

LITTLE ROCK — University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) researcher Mitchell R. McGill, Ph.D., has received the 2018 Pinnacle Research Award from the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases (AASLD) Foundation, the largest private supporter of liver disease research in the United States.

McGill, an assistant professor in the College of Public Health, will use the three-year, $300,000 award to further explore notable findings related to liver regeneration following acute liver failure caused by acetaminophen overdose. McGill joined UAMS in 2017 with funding support from the UAMS Translational Research Institute.

The AASLD Foundation recently announced its investment of $4.06 million, its largest in the organization’s history, in Research and Career Development Awards granted to 36 researchers and clinicians.     MORE
