The Liver Scholar Award is a three-year, $75,000 per year ($225,000 total) basic science award that encourages young investigators to pursue a career in liver-related research. The goal is to provide the young scientists with support at an early stage of their careers to bridge the gap between completion of research training and attainment of status as an independent research scientist. The additional research experience provided by this award is intended to enable them to successfully compete for research grants from national sources, particularly the NIH.
AASLD and American Liver Foundation maintain a commitment to supporting liver disease research. Each year both organizations provide independent funding for the Liver Scholar Award program.
