The Liver Biology Conference: Fundamental Mechanisms and Translational Applications

June 26–30, 2022
New Orleans, LA


June 26-30, 2022

This FASEB Science Research Conference (SRC) is the next iteration of a biennial liver-focused meeting that began in 1988. It is the premier small meeting that covers all aspects of basic and translational research involving the liver.

It provides a key forum for scientific exchange between attendees of diverse scientific backgrounds to generate innovative ideas, national and international collaborations, and solutions for liver-related biology and medicine.

This conference aims to accelerate the translation of fundamental advances into novel clinical treatments through the interactions of basic and clinical researchers.

It brings together the leaders in the field, from both academia and industry, to form a core continuum in liver research. It is strengthened by promoting and encouraging junior investigators/trainees, women, and scientists from underrepresented groups to continue pursuing liver research, ensuring that the study of hepatic disease and biology remains vigorous.

The conference is designed to promote a diversity of people as well as ideas. Preference will be given to junior/trainees, underrepresented groups, and women investigators for the program’s 20 “short talks,” and several events and activities are scheduled to create opportunities for interaction and networking.

Conference sessions will present the latest research and foster discussion on:
  • Hepatogenesis and Hepatic Architecture Establishment
  • Hepatic Plasticity and Regenerative Medicine
  • Non-Parenchymal Cell Biology, Liver Injuries, and Fibrosis
  • Steatotic Liver Diseases
  • Comprehensive Analyses of Hepatocellular Carcinogenesis
  • New Technologies, Functional Screening, and Target Discovery
  • Liver Immunology, Translational Research, and Combinatorial Therapies
  • Metabolism, Bile Acids, and Nuclear Receptors

The program is divided into eight sessions that include platform talks from 36 invited speakers and 20 abstract-selected presentations. The program includes two poster sessions preceded by oral “Poster Blast” presentations, two “Meet-the-Expert” sessions for one-on-one dialogue, and a Career Development Session for junior investigators and trainees.

New features for trainees include an Ambassador Program that pairs a trainee and an investigator and an opening night Trainee-Only Mixer to facilitate introductions between trainees and as many of their peers and investigators as possible.
