Liver: The Master Chemist

August 9, 2023


The liver makes and secretes numerous small chemicals and many of these signal cells in other organs to change their behaviors.

The liver is a master chemist that sends copious signals to help control our appetite and breaks down fats to be stored and used as energy and to combat starvation. Next time you’re hangry, think of your liver kicking into overdrive.

On This Episode We Discuss:

  • Producing countless small chemical metabolites
  • Controlling iron homeostasis
  • The liver and the gut microbiome
  • Combatting starvation and triggering appetite
  • Managing glucose levels

The host of the show is Dr. Stanley Crooke, a scientist, a physician, an entrepreneur and the father of antisense technology. Dr. Crooke is responsible for driving the development of antisense or ASO technology, an RNA-targeted technology responsible for the commercialization of three best- and first-in class medicines and more than 40 drugs in development. In 2020, Stan formed n-Lorem to use this powerful technology to develop experimental personalized ASO medicines for nano-rare patients (1 to 30 patients worldwide) for free, for life.
