Hepatic Encephalopathy

The LiverSeminars Program is an educational activity in which experts in the Hepatology field will come to one of the two organizing institutions (IDIBAPS in Barcelona, IiSGM in Madrid) to spend a whole day sharing basic and translational science. Visits will always have the same agenda: during the morning, the Expert will be able to meet in private with scientists from research centres geographically close to the Institution that welcomes him (please book your time slot at the “meet the speaker” tab), in the afternoon we will have the seminar itself that will be live broadcasted to the Institute that does not host the speaker. Please note that activities are not restricted to the personnel from the organizing institutions. In this page you will find detailed information about the invited Speakers and scientific topics that will be covered during this academic year.

Christopher Rose

Dr. Christopher Rose is currently Professor in the Department of Medicine at the Université de Montréal and director of the Neuro-Hepato laboratory at the University Hospital Research Center (CRCHUM). Dr. Rose received his PhD (Neuroscience/Biomedical Sciences) from the Université de Montréal in 2000. He pursued post-doctoral studies in Germany (Prof. Kettenmann, Berlin), Spain (Prof. Felipo, Valencia and Prof. Cordoba, Barcelona) and Norway (Dr. Ytrebo, Tromso). He was the recipient of 3 prestigious post-doctoral fellowship awards from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation (Germany), Canadian Institute of Health Research (Canada) and the European Association for the Study of the Liver (Europe).

Hepatic encephalopathy, a major neuropsychiatric complication of liver disease, has been the primary focus of Dr. Rose’s translational research for over 25 years, based on a bench-to-bedside concept. Dr. Rose has a vested interest in identifying the pathogenic factors and the pathophysiological pathways involved in the development of cerebral complications associated with liver disease, which ultimately will lead to novel therapeutic approaches, improving the management of patients with liver disease as well as increasing neurological outcome post-liver transplantation.

Dr. Rose’s laboratory is currently funded by the Canadian Institute of Health Research, the Canadian Liver Foundation, and the Québec Health Research Foundation (FRQS). He has published over 77 scientific articles and over 60 students at all levels from throughout the world have trained in his laboratory. Dr. Rose is currently on the editorial board of Journal of Hepatology and Neurochemistry International, a co-chair of the Research Committee of the Canadian Association for the Study of the Liver, and an executive committee member of the International Society for Hepatic Encephalopathy and Nitrogen Metabolism.
