Global Engage is pleased to announce the Global NASH Congress 2018, which will be taking place 26-27 February 2018 in London.
Featuring small group roundtable discussions and ample networking time, the event provides an excellent opportunity to meet and collaborate with senior representatives from industry, hospitals and universities. During the two-day conference, there will be 40 expert-led presentations, interactive panel and roundtable discussions exploring key issues, and a dynamic exhibition room filled with technology providers showcasing relevant solutions.
A selection of 2018 Speakers include:
CEO, Jecure Therapeutics, USA Magda Gunn, Scientific Project Manager Responsible Strategic Area Diabetes & Metabolic Disorders, Innovative Medicines Initiative, Belgium
Professor of Experimental Hepatology & Consultant Hepatologist, Institute of Celluar Medicine, Newcastle University, UK
Lead Medical Officer, DGIEP Liver Team IV, Center for Drug Evaluation and Research, Food and Drug Administration, USA
President of the European Society of Pathology, Director of the Department of Pathology, Physiology and Imaging, Hôpital Beaujon, Université Paris Diderot, France
Attracting experts working in all areas of nonalcoholic steatohepatitis, the conference will examine the latest research and development in pathogenesis, diagnosis and treatment of the disease.
An increasing number of people are being diagnosed with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) each year, and the primary method of treatment is weight loss. With no approved medicines on the market, the drug development race is intensifying. The pathogenesis of NASH is still not fully understood, and definitive diagnostic methods are invasive, so development has been slow.
There are, however, promising developments in research that will hopefully bolster drug development and other methods of treatment. Examples of such developments include improved in vivo liver models, non-invasive diagnostic biomarkers and a better understanding of the disease’s mechanisms. This year’s congress will focus on these exciting advancements, as well as on the challenges of preclinical and clinical research in NASH. There will also be a session on business development/regulation and a showcase of the most promising therapeutics in development.

Notice for Speakers and Exhibitors
It is becoming increasingly common across all conferences for a company calling themselves Exhibitor Housing Group (or Services, or other similar names) to contact companies and people posted on a conference agenda to try to sell them hotel rooms – allowing you to believe they are appointed by the conference organizer. Do not have anything to do with them. They have no connection to Global Engage or this conference and all reports about them that find their way back to us from other events are negative.

Poster presentation sessions will take place in breaks and alongside the other breakout sessions of the conference. Your presentation will be displayed in a dedicated area, with the other accepted posters from industry and academic presenters.
We also issue a poster eBook to all attendees with your full abstract in and can share your poster as a PDF after the meeting if you desire (optional).
Whether looking for funding, employment opportunities or simply wanting to share your work with a like-minded and focused group, these are an excellent way to join the heart of this congress.
In order to present a poster at the forum you need to be registered as a delegate. Please note that there is limited space available and poster space is assigned on a first come first served basis (subject to checks and successful registration).
We charge an admin fee of £100 to industry delegates to present, that goes towards the shared cost of providing the poster presentation area and display boards, guides etc. This fee is waived for those representing academic institutions and not for profit organisations.
