Liver NPC stainingThe Pittsburgh Liver Research Center strives to provide its members with meaningful and relevant enrichment programs.

The Seminar series features established liver researchers and clinicians from the University of Pittsburgh and UPMC as well as from other universities and hospitals. Seminars are held one Monday each month.

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. Each SIG meets once every 6 weeks.

AASLD-EASL Masterclass 2021 @ TBD
Dec 10 – Dec 12 all-day

The 2021 EASL-AASLD Masterclass provides a unique educational collaboration of clinical, basic, and translational scientists from leading academic medical institutions from both sides of the Atlantic. Participants will attend a two-day intensive training session designed for future leaders in academic hepatology.  The program will consist of academic lectures, interactive break-out sessions, individual meetings with tutors, abstract presentations and a poster session, and social events to give early-stage investigators (MD, PhD, or MD/PhD, or equivalent) the opportunity to network with world leaders in hepatology.

This year’s program is hosted by AASLD and will be held in the U.S.A.
