Imagine a world without liver diseases. We can see that world – and we believe it is possible. That’s why we are boldly investing in innovative hepatology research, and in the people who study and treat liver disease. That is why we support AASLD Foundation.

AASLD Foundation was created to fill the void between bright, talented researchers and the funding needed to encourage their discoveries. Additionally, we exist to provide essential resources to train health care professionals in providing care for patients with liver disease.


As the largest private supporter of hepatology research in the United States, we have awarded over $47 million in research and career development awards since 2000. And, 46 percent of our awardees have gone on to receive federal funding during or after their award.

If you have thoughts about our work or new areas we could focus on through the AASLD Foundation, share them with me via email or Twitter at @AASLDFoundation.

Thanks for exploring our site to see how we are making a difference through our research and career development initiatives, the Fundamentals of Liver Disease, and to learn how you can help us do more through a donation.
