Bridging Basic Science and Liver Disease

32nd Annual Irwin M. Arias Symposium

The first Irwin M. Arias, M.D. Symposium was held in 1991, and the theme of the event was – as it remains today – Bridging Basic Science and Liver Disease.

This unique one-day program brings together hundreds of leading biomedical scientists and physicians from across the globe and is designed to bridge the remarkable advances in basic biology and engineering with the understanding of liver diseases and their treatment. Research presented over the past 32 years has led to advances in the diagnosis and treatment of virtually all liver diseases in children and adults.

With plenary talks from renowned researchers and a collection of three-minute micro talks delivered by trainee scientists, the Arias Symposium is a model in ‘bridging’ between the academic, industrial, and clinical research communities – even across disciplines.

Historically, the Arias Symposium has been an in-person event until the pandemic caused a shift to a virtual format. For 2023, the symposium will be offered both in-person and virtually. Registration is free.

We welcome participation from researchers at every stage of their careers, and invite them to share perspectives from their academic, industrial, and clinical research settings. Trainees and early-career investigators who are interested in presenting a micro-talk (in-person or virtually) or poster (in-person only), should submit an abstract with their registration. The deadline to submit an abstract has been extended to November 3, 2023.
