This issue of Liver Lowdown is all about Research! Learn more about ALF's 2015 research award recipients, and make sure you scroll down for highlights from the 2015 International Liver Congress, and an update on one of our 2014 Post-Doctoral Fellowship recipients.
The emerging public health challenge of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) was a hot topic at the meeting.
News about hepatitis C is changing at a rapid pace. There are many treatments being investigated and more calls to action about testing.
Promising research about a potential new treatment for PBC was discussed at the conference, which is exciting because currently there is only one treatment available for this disease.
In 2014, the American Liver Foundation provided funding to 11 early-career scientists from some of the nation’s leading academic institutions who are making the study of liver disease their life’s work. Read about grantee Zenobia Cofer, PhD.
ALF continues to make news around the country. Liver Life Walks and Flavors events, as well as education about topics such as fatty liver disease and the impact of alcohol on the liver are just a few.
ALF hosts a number of events throughout the year to support liver disease awareness. Check our events calendar and find one to participate in, including Liver Life Walks, Challenges and Flavors events in August and September.
