The ILCA Single Topic Workshop (STW) focuses on a specific area in which recent developments have transformed the field of HCC.

Last June, ILCA organised its very first STW with state-of-the-art lectures about HCC Risk Stratification and Surveillance, and it was a huge success!

The Single Topic Workshop featured great sessions and lively debates from leading scientists and liver cancer specialists. We learned about the history of HCC surveillance research, novel biomarkers, potential alternative strategies to ultrasound, current challenges for HCC screening and type of cohort studies needed to define the high-risk population and validate biomarkers, and much more. Overall, this field looks very promising, but there’s still a lot of work and trials to be done.

What people are saying about the STW

As a young researcher, the recently concluded ILCA STW was beneficial for me to understand in a wider point of view the past improvements of HCC management both clinically and in basic science and understand where it is going in the future. The method to which the topics are presented were really well thought of, so that the information given has arrived to the audience in a complete and comprehensive way. All moderators and panelists are also very efficient in creating a balanced discussion between the experts and the audience. Loraine Kay Cabral, MSc, The Italian Liver Foundation, Trieste, Italy

Fantastic range of topics discussed within a focussed field. Highly recommended. – Tim Meyer, UCL and Royal Free Hospital London, London, United Kingdom

It was an amazing experience after two years of online conferences. I was surrounded by amazing scientists and people completely enthusiastic about their works, happy to share their knowledge with us, and interested to answer the questions and having high-level discussions with the other scientist and speakers. It gave me a comprehensive vision of the state of the art in HCC risk, surveillance, and biomarker development. Moreover, the quality of each speaker, presentation, and panel discussion was very high. Thank you for the opportunity! – Luca Grisetti, Fondazione Italiana Fegato – ONLUS, Trieste, Italy

As a result of the successful Single Topic Workshop, a group of experts is working on a white paper which will be available very soon. Stay tuned!
