About Us

GLI appreciates the support of Liver Central’s founding sponsor, TriSalus Life Sciences, in the development of this new and valuable resource for the liver community.


Global Liver Institute (GLI) was founded in 2014 by Donna Cryer, who received a life-saving liver transplant in law school after years of living with an autoimmune disease. On the 20th anniversary of her transplant, she realized her experience as a patient, lawyer, and professional health systems consultant could help fellow patients and those impacted by liver disease.

Our values of patient-centeredness, collaboration, integrity, inclusion, and results drive.

Our Mission

To improve the lives of individuals and families impacted by liver disease through promoting innovation, encouraging collaboration, and scaling optimal approaches to help eradicate liver diseases.

Whether we are providing needed information or encouraging collaboration throughout the medical community, we are committed in all our work to eradicating liver cancers and other diseases while serving as an empathetic and educational ally for those affected.

Liver Central was created by GLI as a destination for information and education specific to liver cancer. No matter your needs or situation, we are here to advocate for you and support your liver cancer needs.
