The European Association for the Study of the Liver started as a small group of 70 hepatologists from 15 European countries who came together to share best medical practice in April 1966.
Over half a century later EASL has evolved into a major European Association with international influence dedicated to the liver and liver disease.
EASL has over 4,000 members from all over the world and provides an annual platform, The International Liver Congress™, for 11,000 liver experts to meet and discuss latest scientific research.
EASL has given rise to many international clinical trials and research collaborations to the benefit of patients all over the world.
Many Ways, One Aim: Beating Liver Disease
To be the Home of Hepatology so that all who are involved with liver disease can realize their full potential to cure and prevent it.
EASL is a non-profit organization with headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland. It performs its duty under a written constitution.
The association is managed by the EASL Governing Board made up of 12 elected members, all active in the medical field.
EASL is composed of individual members who renew their membership on a yearly basis. EASL members meet once a year during the Business Meeting held during The International Liver Congress™.
