"I have expanded my understanding of the liver, which in turn has translated into better patient care."

Why The AASLD Liver Research Fund?
Patients count on hepatology providers for quality care, knowledge, and the expertise to make treatment recommendations. 100% of donations to The AASLD Liver Research Fund are used to support the programs, educational grants, research awards and fellowships that are vital to funding new research which will lead to improved treatments for patients with liver disease.
The need for liver research is increasing, while at the same time traditional funding sources are diminishing; grants from the NIH have remained stagnant; and private funding has been dropping consistently. These reductions in private and public support are especially significant since this alone may discourage many future researchers and physicians from pursuing careers in hepatology.
We invite you to meet the future leaders in hepatology.
