Immune-Mediated Liver Disease Special Interest Group 

The Immune-Mediated Liver Disease Special Interest Group (SIG) is an affiliate of the British Association for Study of Liver Disease (BASL) and cross cuts existing programmes of activity as part of UK-PSC, UK-PBC, UK-AIH and IgG4-related hepatobiliary disease. The remit of this programme will be to generate high quality multi-centre observational cohort studies, increase patient registration to each of the core UK-autoimmune liver disease strands, and perhaps most importantly, develop collaborative grant applications on a larger scale, focussing on key areas of research priority set out by patients, clinicians and industry.  If anyone wishes to join the group please contact the BASL secretariat on Samantha@basl.org.uk.
