The Hepatic Fibrosis: New Concepts and Controversies conference will serve as an update on current progress made in hepatic fibrosis with many new discoveries that have shaped the field including basic research of fibrosis and the role of the microbiome and gut-liver axis. In addition, significant new information about non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and the potential role of nonparenchymal cells in fibrosis, with emphasis on nonparenchymal-stellate cell crosstalk will be discussed. Also, translational aspects of fibrosis and cirrhosis, including translation of findings into humans as well as discoveries that may lead to novel therapies will be covered.
