Outstanding teamwork was a key factor in the successful liver transplant for little Marissa Emple. Dr. Arthur Horwich, former assistant professor of human genetics, first diagnosed the severe enzyme deficiency, tyrosinemia, in Marissa and designed a diet to control her disease until surgery.
Horwich is presently the Sterling Professor of Genetics and Professor of Pediatrics at Yale.
