Title: "Critical roles of Chitinase 3-like 1 (CHI3L1) in inflammation, fibrosis and cancer."

Abstract: Chitinase 3-like protein 1 (CHI3L1) is a key regulatory protein playing important roles in inflammation, which is related to fibrosis and cancer. In this talk, basic biological function of CHI3L1 will be discussed and then the focus will be on the roles of CHI3L1 in liver diseases including nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NALFD) and hepatitis, and its implications in cancer.
