We can do more. With your help, we will do more.

Since 2000, we have provided more than $42 million to advance liver research and advanced hepatology training opportunities. This represents the largest single commitment of funding in support of liver research and advanced hepatology training by any professional organization.

Your donation to the AASLD Foundation directly supports liver research and advanced hepatology training.

Help Make New Discoveries in Liver Disease Possible

Securing the future of the field is no small task. Every AASLD Foundation award is a substantial expenditure – and rightly so, because the fight against liver disease is expensive. Unfortunately, this means we traditionally are only able to fund 30-45% of our annual meritorious applicants. That’s a tremendous gap – and one that we can do something about – together. With every donation we will be one step closer to ending liver disease in our lifetime.

Your donation to the AASLD Foundation will help:

  • fund new and innovative liver research;
  • foster increased access for a growing number of liver disease patients to adequately trained hepatology providers;
  • encourage young investigators to pursue careers in liver research; and
  • support advanced hepatology training for front-line providers.

We are one of the leading organizations you can choose to partner with in the fight against liver disease. Here are just a few of the ways we are making a difference:

  • Every donor dollar invested in our research has resulted in a 275% return on investment based on additional funding from NIH and other sources.
  • Researchers funded between 2008 and 2015 have had tremendous results:
    • 48% have gone on to receive NIH funding during or post award
    • 18 R Series and 13 K Series awards were reported
    • Based on past surveys, 77% of awardees told us that research from their AASLD Foundation funding was used as the basis to secure funding from other sources
