The BASL Committee welcomes you to York

Please join us at the University of York for the BASL2018 Annual Conference where all of us interested in liver disease will share time whether we are clinicians, nurses, basic scientists, pharmacists, working in industry or students.

BASL follows seamlessly from the fourth meeting of the British Liver Transplant Group (BLTG), making it easy for the many delegates who want to attend both conferences. BLTG as ever includes the ‘Williams-Calne Lecture’, given this year by Professor Dorry Segev (John Hopkins University, US). 

The British Liver Nurses Association (BLNA) hold their Annual Meeting on Wednesday afternoon and Thursday, with Thursday morning offering a joint BASL/BLNA session on lifestyle and the liver.  The meeting promises to deliver exciting and inspiring sessions for all liver nurses, with the programme including a wide range of topics.

We start with a basic science symposium on understanding and harnessing viral resistance on Wednesday morning (open to all comers), preceding the main BASL meeting. The BASL conference proper opens after lunch on Wednesday and will explore new horizons in HBV and HCV.

The moderated poster session is on Wednesday evening with supper provided. Please note: posters are to remain in situ throughout.

The second day offers the joint BASL and BLNA session in the morning, followed by an afternoon session themed around the heart and the liver. The conference dinner will take place in the evening at The Merchant's Adventurer in the centre of York.

The final morning will see a series of case-based discussions led by recognised experts in the field, followed by oral presentations of the highest scoring abstracts of original research.

As always, we are grateful to our sponsors without whom it would be impossible to run these meetings and to all Speakers and Chairs for their individual contributions.

Enjoy the conference!
