The mandate of the Canadian Liver Foundation is to provide support for research and education into the causes, diagnosis, prevention and treatment of diseases of the liver. Operating Grants are for the support of research projects directed towards a defined objective, conducted by an investigator working alone or in collaboration with others. These grants may be used to purchase materials, supplies and items of equipment costing less than $5,000, to buy and maintain animals, and to support travel costs (to a limit of $1,000).

The amount funded will be established on the basis of the financial requirements of the proposed research program and whether the amount of the grant is justified by the extent and the significance of the research program proposed. It is the intention of the Foundation that grants will be up to $60,000 annually for each grant awarded; each award will be provided for a maximum of two years, after which time renewal may be sought. Please see sponsor website for specific funding categories.
