Alcohol related liver disease accounts for 50% of all liver disease, but the biology of why some individuals develop severe liver disease (cirrhosis) and other do not, remains uncertain, and management options remain exceedingly limited and centered around abstinence. In this series, we seek to address these knowledge and care gaps by highlighting state of the art knowledge and bringing together clinicians and investigators in a virtual forum. This will be a once monthly virtual seminar, featuring global experts in hepatology, addiction medicine and the basic science of liver disease to highlight state-of-the-art knowledge and an evidenced-based approach to the diagnosis and management of alcohol-related liver disease.

Target Audience

This activity is intended for Clinicians and Investigators with an interest in the biology and management of alcohol use disorder and alcohol-related liver diseases.

Learning Objectives

Upon completing this activity, participants will be able to:

  1. Understand the intimate relationship and bidirectional communication between the gut microbiota and liver
  2. Discuss the role of chronic alcohol consumption on gut microbiota composition and function
  3. Identify the gut microbiota as target for therapy of alcohol-related liver diseases
