A Glimpse of What to Expect

"This was unlike any scientific meeting I have ever been to. Everyone who attended was interested in some aspect of drug development for NASH. I truly enjoyed the "applied science" focus of the meeting as it helped me where I most needed the help. The opportunity to network and learn informally in the poster session and during receptions was excellent."
