The Pilot Research Award in Liver Diseases provided by the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases (AASLD) Foundation supports early-career researchers in the USA, Canada or Mexico working in hepatology and liver diseases. The award supports highly innovative research ideas that have a clear potential to produce high-impact results, but that have little or no preliminary data to successfully compete for funding from other sources. Applicants must have at least 3 years of experience as faculty members. Applicants must be members of the AASLD. The Award provides 50,000 USD over 1 year (no indirect costs). Applications close on December 4, 2023.
