October 31, 2022 ‒ NASH Roundtable™ will host the 6th Annual Meeting on November 5, 2022, in Washington, DC, during the AASLD The Liver Meeting, bringing together leading experts to facilitate advances in science, clinical research, and patient care for nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH).

NASH Roundtable annual meetings correspond with the AASLD Liver Meeting and focus on a topic of importance to the medical and scientific community. The upcoming 6th Annual Meeting will facilitate a discussion on serum and imaging-based non-invasive testing, including regulatory considerations, within NAFLD/NASH clinical research. Moreover, the level of evidence in favor of replacing liver biopsy with non-invasive tests for clinical research and trials, as well as the major remaining challenges, will be analyzed.
