For the first time, the meeting will also invite trainees to present their original research in the GI/liver field.

Meeting topics

  • Recognise and understand the management of GI and liver side effects and diseases from immunosuppression, including the use of novel therapies
  • Engage interactively to consider the investigations and management of interesting clinical cases
