The case of the vanishing yellow man

I recently gave a public lecture as part of the University of Edinburgh Medical Detectives lecture series. This is a series of public talks based loosely on the fact that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, a former medical student in Edinburgh created the character of Sherlock Holmes who pieced together fragments of information and observation to reach a conclusion and that much of medical research follows a similar course. “The case of the vanishing yellow man” is my take on research on liver failure drawing on acute settings and chronic liver disease and looking forward to how transplantation and cell technology may provide new avenues for treating cirrhosis in the future. The talk has been edited down to just under 40 minutes.
