Currently, Carmen Peralta is IDIBAPS Researcher group leader Experimental Liver Surgery and Liver transplantation, and coordinator of the Consolidated Research Group for the Generalitat of Catalonia (Group for Quality in Research). The research carried out by Carmen Peralta is focused on pharmacological and surgical strategies that protect steatotic and non-steatotic livers against the vulnerability of this type of liver to ischemia-reperfusion injury and regeneration failure associated with hepatic resections and liver transplantation. Protective strategies in reduced-size liver transplantation are also investigated. Our research could improve the postsurgical outcome in liver surgery and could also contribute to a better use of organs for transplantation and consequently, to diminish waiting lists for liver transplantation.
