International NASH Day 2018

On International NASH Day 2018, we’re sharing some key facts about this silent epidemic which affects the livers of one in four Scots. Find out what we and our partners Eagle Genomics and the universities of Glasgow and Edinburgh are doing to find more effective tests and treatments for NASH at http://www.stratmed.co.uk/news-and-events/2018/february/17m-of-innovate-uk-funding-will-help-tackle-silent-killer-that-could-affect-one-in-four-scots/

The creation of the NASH Data Commons will provide a unified data system that promotes sharing of genomic and clinical data, forming the basis for a comprehensive knowledge system that centralises, standardises and makes accessible data. These datasets will lead to a much deeper understanding of which therapies are most effective for individual patients. With each new dataset added e.g. additional ‘omics’ data, it will evolve into a smarter, more comprehensive knowledge system that will foster important discoveries in chronic liver disease and increase the success of treatments for patients.
