The European Association for the Study of the Liver ( EASL ) is a medical association dedicated to pursuing excellence in liver research, clinical practice of liver disorders, and in providing education to all those interested in hepatology. While the roots of the association were founded in Europe in 1966, the organization  continues to engage globally with all stakeholders in the liver field wherever they are based. Our aim is to spread knowledge and expertise in best practices and the latest scientific breakthroughs in hepatology.

EASL not only hosts an annual meeting known as The International Liver CongressTM, but also offers a vast range of scientific events and initiatives throughout the year. We also grant fellowships, mentorships and bursaries, lobby at the EU commission, produce Clinical Practice Guidelines, offer online education, apps and many other initiatives.
