Research is integral to the work of the American Liver Foundation (ALF) and is essential to improving treating and finding a cure for liver disease.
Since 1979, the Research Awards Program has provided more than $26 million in research funding. Over 825 qualified scientists and physicians have pursued careers in liver disease research and treatment as a result of receiving these grants early in their careers.
The American Liver Foundation is proud to support these research efforts and is hopeful that they will bring us closer to finding a cure for liver disease.
