The Clinical, Translational and Outcomes Research Awards in Liver Diseases are two-year awards of $200,000 ($100,000/year) intended to foster career development for individuals performing clinical research, translational research, or outcomes research in a liver-related area and who have shown commitment to excellence at an early stage of their research study. The awards ensure that a significant portion of young investigator’s time is protected for research, with an overall objective of enabling young investigators to develop independent and productive research careers in liver disease.

Applicants will be evaluated based upon their background, their commitment to a research career, the strength of their research project and the environment in which they will conduct this project.

Applications will be reviewed based on the written materials submitted. Incomplete applications and applications that fail to adhere strictly to the instructions (including the submission deadline and page limitations) will not be reviewed. All decisions are final.
