This talk provides an overview of applications of
a computational platform (Phenotypic Precision
Medicine) to optimize combination therapy to
markedly enhance efficacy and safety in the
treatment of a variety of diseases of the liver.
These include two independent approaches to
the treatment liver cancer, a leading cause of
cancer death worldwide and the only cancer
whose mortality rate had increased over the
last 10 years. I will also discuss optimization of
immunosuppression after liver transplantation
and fatty liver disease and non-alcoholic
steatohepatitis.
