Globally Renowned for Expertise in Liver Care and Research

The Texas Liver Institute (TLI) is a non-for-profit organization dedicated to fighting liver disease by partnering with those who share the same focus in delivering outstanding research and clinical care. TLI is a one-of-a-kind facility that encompasses one of the very few dedicated and freestanding clinic (Texas Liver Consultants, TLC) and research facilities (American Research Corporation, ARC) in the world. The most advanced research in viral hepatitis, alcoholic and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, autoimmune liver disease, and cirrhosis is conducted at this facility, which has been recognized internationally for its contributions to the field of liver diseases.

TLI cares for patients from the United States and internationally  as well. Some of the research conducted here is offered nowhere else, and patients travel from near and far to seek the opinions of our world-renowned faculty.

The physicians of TLI are hepatologists and professors of medicine at the University of Texas Health Science Center,  teach students, and also train allied health professionals and physicians, both locally and internationally. Many teaching seminars are held at TLI, and TLI hosts large educational symposia across North America.
