Liver Scholar Award

Funding Agency:
American Liver Foundation

The objective of the Liver Scholar Award is to develop the potential of outstanding, early career scientists and encourage basic and translational research in liver biology and disease. The Liver Scholar Award provides junior faculty with support for their research to bridge the gap between completion of research training and attainment of status as an independent, well-funded research scientist. The additional research funding provided by this award is intended to enable early career scientists to successfully compete for research awards from national sources, particularly the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Investigators who hold MD, PhD or MD/PhD degrees and are pursuing a career in liver research are encouraged to apply. Individuals who are already well-established in the field are not eligible for this award.
