The digital ILC 2020 recently brought together over ten thousand scientific and medical professionals from a broad range of fields for three days of virtual sessions, ePosters and plenaries. If you couldn’t make it, catch-up with our highlights from this year’s congress.

The main theme this year was a focus on the kinds of everyday life changes that can help or even reverse liver disease. Sharing epidemiological and real-world data on the latest liver research, this year’s expert-led sessions included:

  • Updates on non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, from pathophysiology to drug targets, as well as a discussion on the challenges and progress in NASH drug development.
  • An advanced cirrhosis symposium covering topics such as gut microbiota in chronic liver disease and long-term albumin treatment in decompensated cirrhosis.
  • Talks by world-leading experts on the potential of multi-omics technologies and artificial intelligence in conditions such alcoholic liver disease, liver fibrosis and liver cancer.

This year’s conference was packed with a wide range of interactive and engaging content that shared recent data, presented studies and discussed the hottest topics in liver disease. If you want to see more, click here to view the full scientific programme from the digital ILC 2020.
