Since 2020 EASL Studio has been a part of the International Liver Congress (ILC), bringing you the most up-to-date research live from the congress. But EASL Studio is evolving.

EASL Studio is now a new platform through which we will be exploring hepatology every week, from every angle. Through live debates, interviews, and roundtable discussions, EASL Studio will be a chance to peak behind the scenes. Hear the expert’s opinion on the latest research. Discover what it’s like to be a young investigator. Meet the Nurses, the allied health professionals, and the patients they work with.

Watch on-demand the first Session that was broadcasted on Wednesday 27 October 2021.
