5th Autoimmune Hepatitis Research Workshop on 27 & 28 June 2024

5th AIH

Following the previous successful iterations in Hamburg, Newcastle, Vienna and Maastricht, this in-person workshop will focus on advancing research in AIH, strengthening existing networks and building new ones.

Thematically, we will continue previous paths with updates on ongoing clinical projects, emphasis on diagnostic and predictive improvements, and the understanding of AIH pathogenesis. Following the successful initiation in Maastricht 2022, a dedicated session will focus on the patient’s perspective. To learn from researchers with a background other than autoimmune liver diseases, there will be keynote lectures and a dedicated workshop focusing on data curation, AI approaches and what we could learn from other disciplines.

There will be room to discuss both advances from the previous meeting in Maastricht as well as to bring up new ideas. When registering, please indicate whether you would like to propose a new project, present an update on an ongoing project or present preliminary research data (5-minute pitch and 3 minutes of discussion), along with a short working title in the commentary field or later on via email (aih-workshop@mh-hannover.de).

Information on registration, accommodation and travelling costs. There is no registration fee for the workshop, but everybody attending should actively engage in the meeting for the best possible experience and output because that characterizes this group. Current funding will cover food & beverages during the workshop, a social networking dinner on Thursday evening as well as one (1) night accommodation. Travelling expenses are not covered and will be at your own expense. However, we do want to promote the active engagement of young investigators and patient representatives and aim to reimburse the second overnight stay for these groups in case of active contribution.

First come first serve: We are limited to 60 people, so please register at (https://www.mhh.de/en/aih-workshop) and book your accommodation as early as possible.

Our 5th AIH workshop precedes the 20th edition of the HepNet Symposium at Hannover Medical School, to which we also extend a warm invitation. Being a national symposium for hepatologists, special sessions in English on hot topics in Hepatology are planned at the beginning on Friday afternoon for international guests. If anybody wants to attend HepNet Symposium, please get in touch so we can organize a shuttle transfer

We are very much looking forward to welcoming you in Hannover to an interesting and productive workshop.
