The recent edition of the prestigious ILCA School of Liver Cancer has just been held and was an enormous success. Again, a sell-out event; it was this time in Chicago on 26-27 May. Thanks to the great contribution of our hosts The University of Chicago, Northwestern University, Rush University and Loyola University – their multi-centre collaboration was a case-study in its own right!

“We were distinctly honoured to be granted the opportunity to run the ILCA School by the governing board. We had a world class faculty, presenting cutting edge topics with contemporary data, topped off with lively yet respectful debate. We all share a passion for helping patients with HCC and Cholangiocarcinoma, and the 1.5 day school embodied that spirit.” – Riad Salem MD MBA, Northwestern University
