Note from the Chair
The phrase ‘world expert’ is often over-used but it is fair to say that we have two true world experts speaking at the event. Professor Nassim Kamar has led the way in our understanding of chronic hepatitis E and has published the majority of the seminal pieces of work in the field. He is going to give a state of the art lecture on the management of chronic hepatitis E. Professor Heiner Wedemeyer is a world leading expert on many aspects of viral hepatitis with his work in the field of hepatitis delta guiding the way in this area – one which I consider the final frontier in our battle against morbidity and mortality caused by the viral hepatitis. He is going to update us on management of this difficult virus. I look forward to welcoming you to what is likely to be a truly exceptional event.
