Drug-induced liver injury (DILI) remains one of the major concerns for drug developers, regulators, healthcare providers and patients. Unfortunately, the mechanisms of DILI are largely unknown. This symposium will highlight novel insights into the mechanisms of DILI from the perspectives of metabolomics, genomics, and cell signaling pathways. This session will also discuss the potential applications of novel findings from the preclinical studies of DILI for the management of DILI in the clinic.
