The mission of the IT -Liver project is to provide a training program in multidisciplinary research and interesectorial aimed at young researchers to prepare them to lead research in chronic liver disease and drug discovery in Europe.
If you want to know more about IT -Liver you can consult the web (http://www.it-liver.eu/) and the video project. We also invite you to visit the interviews to the young researchers hired by the project.
