CLDF has a strong track record of supporting research, with over £9 million of research funding delivered since 1980. Most of this money has been donated by families, friends, relatives and other supporters. Research not only enhances our understanding of childhood liver disease and improves available treatments, but it gives children, young people and their families hope for a better future.
CLDF has funded a wide range of projects including clinical, lab based, and social science research, all focused on aspects of childhood liver disease.
Making an application for funding
The decision to award funding is made by CLDF’s Scientific Committee. They are a group of experts who ensure research funded by CLDF is rigorous and is most likely to have a positive impact on children with liver disease and their families. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent cost of living crisis, CLDF is facing unprecedented fundraising challenges and the board has taken the difficult decision not to accept any applications for new research grants during 2023. We shall continue to support all our existing projects which you can find out more about here.
CLDF remains committed to research and we will continue to monitor and review the situation and update this page when we able to reopen for new applications.
