Memorial Travel Award Program

The AASLD Foundation Memorial Travel Award Program was created to allow individuals to be honored by naming travel awards after them. These awards can be topic-specific, and the recipient(s) will be selected from the abstracts submitted for presentation at The Liver Meeting®.

Funding for these awards comes from donations to the AASLD Foundation in support of the award. Total funding necessary for each award is $3,000 ($2,500 for the award, $500 administrative costs). All funding must be received by May 1 of the year the first recipient is selected for presentation during The Liver Meeting®.
