Project description

The goal of this project is to observe the behaviour of glycomics (the analysis of N-glycans on the total of proteins in serum) before and after liver transplantation in normal patients and patients developing complications after transplantation. The goal is to study the evolution in patients without complications and patients that develop complications. If different patterns are observed, this might lead to the development of biomarkers.
