TASL - BASL Monothematic Conference - Save the Date

SAVE THE DATE

Turkish and British Associations for the Study of the Liver (TASL-BASL) are pleased to announce a monothematic conference, “Drug-induced Liver Injury: Unresolved questions and unmet needs”.

The meeting was planned to take place in Istanbul, Turkey, however due to the pandemic the meeting will be held virtually.  

We hope that the programme will be a timely and welcome opportunity to reflect upon an area of critical importance for clinicians, researchers, scientists, pharma and other health care professionals.

Drugs and herbs are a common aetiology underlying acute liver injury. The number, variety and mechanism of action of drugs in use continues to expand. Along with this, interest and importance of drug-induced liver injury (DILI) has grown. Dissemination of knowledge related to DILI and a shared understanding is crucial to improve its diagnosis and safety of medications.

On behalf of TASL and BASL, we welcome you to join experts from Turkey and the United Kingdom in this event where we aim to appraise recent advances and emerging context in the field to identify priorities for future collaboration. We are excited to have this opportunity to create a partnership between TASL and BASL as well as to share the cutting-edge information with regards to DILI.

Further details including a programme and how to register for the conference will follow.
