Dear Colleagues and Friends
It is with great satisfaction that I receive this award, which in my opinion, corresponds not only to the recognition of my activities during my professional life, but also to the recognition of the activities of several Latin American colleagues working in the field of hepatology for the scientific growth of our continent. No professional manages to reach the peak of it´s scientific production without the help of collaborators, a professional institution that provides working conditions and collaborative work within a network abroad and in Brazil. I would like to thank all those who welcomed me during this journey of my life, especially my mentors, colleagues and my family.
Thank you very much for this generosity!
