Chronic Liver Diseases

Chronic Liver Diseases Special Interest Group

The Special Interest Group (SIG) Roundtables are designed to exhibit the connection between work within clinics and labs. Clinicians and basic scientists are paired by topic for these sessions, with both presenters having the opportunity to explicate the topic from the perspective of their own work. The goal is to foster translational science, dialogue, and collaboration among the members of the Center. This SIG meets once every 6 weeks.
