The NAFLD Summit, which will be held on September 16-17 in a virtual format, is organized by the European Association for the Study of the Liver (EASL), a medical association devoted to promoting excellence in liver research and clinical practice as well as providing education in hepatology.

Pericàs will address the challenges and opportunities of Integrated Research Platforms (IRP) and platform trials as well as the proposed trial design for a NASH that was developed by EU-PEARL experts. Furthermore, other EU-PEARL members will participate in talks and discussions around aspects of NASH clinical development that are highly relevant for the accomplishment of EU-PEARL objectives.
