Your contributions help us achieve our mission of investing in innovative hepatology research and in the people who study and treat liver disease.

Your continued support also enables us to provide the largest amount of private funding for liver disease research and training in the United States every year. AASLD Foundation, building upon the philanthropic legacy of AASLD, is the largest private supporter of liver disease research in the United States with more than $47 million awarded since 2000.
This year, thanks to the generosity of our donors, the Foundation funded $4.06 million in 36 awards, the largest level of funding in the history of the program, enabling researchers and clinicians to conduct innovative liver disease research and seek advanced hepatology training. We were also able to expand our awards portfolio to provide more opportunities to bright and promising liver disease researchers and clinicians, including our new Bridge and Pilot Research Awards.

Your gift is an investment in liver research, education and training for clinicians, career opportunities for young investigators and increased access to trained providers for patients. We have accomplished much, but there is still more work to be done.
