Master Class in Liver Disease

Master Class in Liver Disease The ‘Master Class in Liver Disease’ (MCLD) series was envisaged as a means to deliver high quality teaching in liver disease and transplantation. Since its first edition in 2011, it has quickly established itself as one of the most popular scientific meetings in the field in the Indian sub-continent. Each edition is planned as a single theme conference with participation of national & international experts. Previous editions have dealt with topics such as the pathological basis of liver disease, hepatobiliary tumours, paediatric liver diseases, and peri-operative care of the liver recipient.

The recently concluded 7th edition of the MCLD titled- ‘“Liver Diseases & Transplantation – Back to Basics” (Jan 20 – 22, 2017) at ITC Grand Chola, Chennai was a grand success with over 900 delegates.

We take great pleasure in inviting you to the 8th edition of the ‘Master Class in Liver Disease (MCLD)’ being organized in Chennai – January 26-27, 2018. An impressive line-up of distinguished International speakers will engage the audience on the theme “Liver Diseases & Transplantation – Care of the Critically Ill”, delving into a wide range of topics. Seventh in a series of successful conferences, the educational event has gained the distinction of becoming a prominent annual gathering for promoting the exchange of knowledge in understanding and treating Liver-related disorders. The programme also provides the perfect platform to interact and associate with expert colleagues across the globe.
