EASL School — The diagnosis and clinical management of immune-mediated liver diseases: recent advances and controversies
01 Jul 2022 - 02 Jul 2022 • London, United Kingdom
Organizer:
The European Association for the Study of the Liver (EASL)
Abstract:
A dedicated clinical school in rare immune mediated liver diseases including PBC, AIH, PSC, IgG4 related disease, liver disease in patients with primary immunodeficiency and those treated with immune checkpoint inhibitors. The course will follow an inverted classroom model and will rely on local expertise from the Sheila Sherlock Liver Centre at the Royal Free Hospital and the UCL Institute for Liver and Digestive Health, London, UK in all aspects. Over two days, attendees will have the opportunity to learn about the state of the art management and the approach to clinical controversies in this challenging area of hepatological practice. Delegates will then undertake clinical case-based group sessions, facilitated by local experts and feedback key learning points to their colleagues. These feedback sessions will then form the basis of interactive panel discussion amongst delegates and faculty.

Basic Science School — Precision Cut Liver Slices and Liver Organoids – versatile ex-vivo models of liver disease
15 Sep 2022 - 17 Sep 2022 • London, United Kingdom
Organizer:
The European Association for the Study of the Liver (EASL)
Abstract:
Many of the limitations of cellular and animal models of liver disease can be overcome by using human precision cut liver slices and liver organoid cultures. These cutting-edge 3D models can recapitulate the complex multi-cellular pathways involved in liver injury and disease progression. In this Basic Science EASL school, each participant will receive hands-on practical training in the preparation, culture and characterisation of precision cut liver slices. Each participant will also derive liver organoids from liver tissue and from induced pluripotent stem cells. We will train participants in small groups of 6 persons, allowing each delegate to perform these techniques individually. Further to this, each participant will walk away with the ability to induce steatosis, injury, inflammation, fibrosis and viral infection in the slices and the capability to perform microscopic evaluation of both slices and organoids.
