The 2018 Masterclass, jointly sponsored by the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases and European Association for the Study of the Liver, provides a unique educational collaboration of clinical and basic scientists from leading academic medical institutions from both sides of the Atlantic.
Selected participants will attend a two-day intensive training session in Florida, 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.
AASLD will provide complimentary registration, travel, and accommodation expenses for up to 15 candidates from North America who are current full members of AASLD to attend the Masterclass. EASL will also bring 10 early stage-investigator candidates from Europe to attend the Masterclass.
To be eligible for this award, the applicant must fulfill all of the following criteria.
