2020 Standing Committee Nominations

Nominations for AASLD standing committee service in 2020 will be accepted through January 15, 2019. Learn more about AASLD Committees.

2019 Distinguished Awards

Nominations for the 2019 Distinguished Achievement, Distinguished Clinician Educator/Mentor and Distinguished Service Awards will be accepted through January 15, 2019. Award recipients will be selected by the Distinguished Awards Committee with input from the Governing Board. Nominees are not required to be members of AASLD.

Distinguished Achievement Award
The Distinguished Achievement Award is given to an individual in honor of his or her sustained scientific contributions to the field of liver disease and the scientific foundations of hepatology. The award honors a sustained contribution rather than a single discovery or major achievement.

Distinguished Clinician Educator/Mentor Award
The Distinguished Clinician Educator/Mentor Award is given in honor of the sustained service of clinician educators to AASLD or the liver community in general. The award recognizes the skills of outstanding clinicians and educators who have made momentous contributions to hepatology over an extended period.

Distinguished Service Award
The Distinguished Service Award is given to an individual in honor of his or her sustained service to AASLD or the liver disease community in general. The award recognizes service provided to the community of hepatology researchers and clinicians over an extended period; service that is well above and beyond that provided by many members who serve on the Governing Board and Committees of AASLD.
