Symposium 212: IBD and Liver: East Meets West
IBD and Liver: East Meets West
This symposium will focus on infl ammatory bowel diseases (IBD) and hepatitis, including
nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), with additional attention on basic research fields, such as intestinal bacterial flora and regenerative medicine.
Our program will therefore highlight IBDs and hepatitis, including NASH, areas where remarkable
progress is being made, as well as basic research fields, such as intestinal bacterial flora and
regenerative medicine. As world-leading gastroenterologists and hepatologists from Europe and the United States meet with Japanese experts in these fields who are receiving worldwide attention, we
intend to have all participants engage in active discussions on the topics with the differences and
similarities between the East and the West in mind, thereby promoting their scientific and goodwill exchanges. Furthermore, to get as many young leaders of the next generation involved in this event as possible, we have invited them to a poster session.
