Support Your Foundation Help us secure hepatology’s future with a donation. The need for research has never been more critical, and the need for hepatology professionals has never been greater. This year the AASLD Foundation awarded just over $4 million in Research and Career Development Awards funding to 36 of our investigators. This represents the largest amount funded in the history of the Research and Career Development Awards Program. Even with these commitments, meritorious research continues to go unfunded.
