Welcome
The BCLC at the Hospital Clínic of Barcelona is a multidisciplinary team involving all relevant medical specialities devoted to clinical care, research and education in the field of liver cancer. It combines state of the art diagnosis and therapy, with the development of several research projects to evaluate new treatment options. These include laboratory studies in cell cultures or animal models and clinical trials in patients with liver cancer.
