Liver Forum

The Liver Forum is an initiative of the Forum for Collaborative Research, part of the University of California, Berkeley School of Public Health. The Liver Forum was launched in 2014 in response to The Trial Designs and Endpoints for Liver Disease Secondary to Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) meeting sponsored in 2013 by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the American Association for the Study of Liver Disease (AASLD).

The Liver Forum aims to advance the regulatory sciences for the treatment of Non-Alcoholic Steatohepatitis and liver fibrosis by providing an independent and neutral venue for ongoing multi-stakeholder dialogue to identify and address gaps in the field. Neutrality and objectivity is ensured through representation and active engagement of scientific experts from all stakeholder groups, including academia, industry, patient community and regulatory agencies.

GLI President and CEO Donna R. Cryer, JD is included in this expert group of stakeholders on the steering committee as a community representative.

NASH Council Purpose

The purpose of the NASH Council is to shine a spotlight and coalesce an expanded set of stakeholders, in addition to hepatology, around the urgency of developing mechanisms for quantifying and addressing the silent epidemic of fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) in the U.S. and abroad. Current estimates are that as many as 1 in 4 people already have NAFLD or NASH yet these conditions are underrecognized, underdiagnosed, and undertreated.

NASH Council members have the opportunity to join our NASH work groups. The purpose of the NASH work groups is to develop and execute plans to address specific aspects of the fatty liver disease epidemic. These work groups are holding monthly calls. Additionally, the NASH Council will hold full council meetings at the time of DDW and AASLD.
