Every year in April scientific and medical experts from a broad range of fields including hepatology, gastroenterology, internal medicine, cell biology, transplant surgery, infectious diseases, microbiology and virology, pharmacology, pathology, radiology and imaging, come together from around the world to learn about the latest in liver research. Specialists share their recent data, present their studies and findings, and discuss about the hottest topics related to liver disease. Last year, the annual congress attracted almost 11,000 delegates and 250 media representatives from all corners of the planet making this a truly international networking opportunity!
