The CLF is proud of the role we have been able to play in advancing liver research in Canada. Over more than 40 years, we have supported the careers of some of the top researchers in the country and have contributed to a greater understanding of liver disease and to the development of improved diagnostics and treatments.
We are pleased to announce that we will be investing $736,000 in new research projects and training initiatives for 2013. Through our research grant program, we will award $300,000 in funding to 12 projects including seven graduate studentships and five summer studentships covering various fields of study -- viral hepatitis, liver cancer, pediatric liver disease as well as general liver disease research. We will also be contributing an additional $436,000 to special projects in the areas of transplant, liver cancer and research training. Together these investments will help foster the next generation of investigators and will continue the CLF’s legacy of support for Canadian liver research.
