Liverseminar with Stuart Forbes

The conference, entitled “Stem cells in liver diseases” will take place on 25 April at 16:00 in IDIBAPS.

Stuart J Forbes is Chair of Transplantation and Regenerative Medicine at the University of Edinburgh and the Scottish Liver Transplant Unit. SJF’s research focuses on how the chronically damaged liver regenerates and how this process becomes altered in bile duct cancer.

SJF is Director of the MRC Centre for Regenerative Medicine, Edinburgh University and a Hepatologist Consultant at the Scottish Liver Transplant Unit, Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh.

The LiverSeminars Program is an educational activity in which experts in the field of Hepatology come to one of the two organizing institutions (IDIBAPS in Barcelona or IiSGM in Madrid) to spend a whole day sharing their knowledge and perspective about basic and translational science.

The LiverSeminars Programme is patronised by Gilead, CIBEREHD and Asociación Española para el Estudio del Hígado (AEEH).
