2020 Emerging Liver Scholars

Now in its ninth year, AASLD Foundation's Emerging Liver Scholars program will host 20 young physicians at The Liver Meeting Digital Experience® 2020.

Chosen from a highly qualified applicant pool of individuals, these trainees have received grants covering travel, housing, and meeting expenses. In addition to attending the meeting with an AASLD member/mentor from their institution, the ELS attendees will have the opportunity to attend special events specifically suited to their current and future academic needs.
