The American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases (AASLD) Foundation Bridge Award 

The AASLD (American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases) Foundation Bridge Award supports investigators who have recently submitted an NIH R or other federally-funded equivalent award and have received competitive scores on their proposal, but were not funded, as they strengthen their proposal for resubmission to the NIH or other federal agency. Applicant must not have other federal funding or significant institutional bridge funding (greater than $25,000, excluding PI salary support). 

Application due date: October 5, 2019 
Award Amount: $100,000 

The American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases (AASLD) Foundation Pilot Research Award

The AASLD Foundation Pilot Research 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. This award is not intended to support ongoing research in the applicant’s laboratory, but rather support new ideas or approaches that have not previously been studied.

One Pilot Research Award per year will be reserved for the most meritorious PSC-related research. Broader project eligibility criteria will be used for the evaluation of the PSC-related applications.

Application due date: December 4, 2019 
Award Amount: $50,000
