1. An efficient approach for expansion and differentiation of human hepatocyte-derived liver progenitor-like cells (HepLPCs) in vitro that provide a novel cell source for the treatment of liver diseases (Cell Research 2017, 2018);
2. A novel extracorporeal liver support device embedded with 3D-layered human iHepLPCs (Aliver-BAL) that exhibited a remarkable capacity to support liver function in vitro and promote liver regeneration in vivo. (Science Translational Medicine 2020)
