BASL Virtual Annual Meeting 2020 - Abstract Submission & Registration Open

The BASL Committee has decided to address today’s global challenge, and to ensure that members are offered continuing education during 2020, by developing a virtual Annual Meeting platform.

A virtual meeting will continue to provide the essential education that BASL members value and see it as a vital benefit to their membership.

In light of the COVID-19 global impact, this is the perfect opportunity for the liver care community to come together and share knowledge and collaborate through a virtual platform.

The BASL2020 Virtual Annual Meeting is shaping up to be an exciting event with world class speakers across a range of multi-disciplinary topics and the programme is nearly complete and will be published very soon.
