Scheduled activities for Friday, October 20 include:

Clinical Research Workshop, 9 am-Noon

This workshop, The Art of Translation: From Bench to Bedside, aims to bring together investigators from bench to bedside to identify the best methods of collaboration at the translational level, determine how to define meaningful endpoints, and work in teams across disciplines, institutions and with pharma to address the epidemic of NASH.

Poster Presentation & Viewing, Noon-3 pm

Attend the poster presentation session from noon-1:30 pm in Hall D. Then head over to the Pavilion and take your time viewing ePosters. You can also view many posters online after the meeting through LiverLearning®.

Career Development Workshop, 3-5 pm

The main objective of this program is to educate medical students or residents who are considering a career in hepatology about training opportunities as well as arm the current GI and/or hepatology fellows with knowledge to help them succeed in academic hepatology.

Academic Debates, 5:15-7 pm

This program challenges transplant hepatology trainees to think critically about important and controversial issues in hepatology. Debaters, judges and the audience will be required to consider the scientific, societal, individual and financial sides to each of the important clinical issues to be debated. 

Trainee Reception, 7-9 pm

In addition to networking, attendees will learn how to participate in any of AASLD's 16 Special Interest Groups (SIGs).
