The Foundation for Liver Research
The Foundation for Liver Research was established in 1974 to develop and extend research into diseases of the human liver and to enhance medical research generally.
For over 30 years the Foundation has supported ground-breaking research programmes into liver disease under the direction of Professor Roger Williams, CBE. This work is carried out within the purpose-built Institute of Hepatology located on the Denmark Hill campus of King's College in south east London. The Institute provides laboratory space for up to 50 scientists and is affiliated to King's College London and King's College Hospital. Research is organised around major research projects within the overall theme of Liver Cell Injury and Repair. Current areas of research include viral hepatitis, liver cancer, liver inflammation and metabolism, liver cell injury and metabonomic and proteomic studies.
The third report of the Lancet Commission into Liver Disease in the UK was published online on Friday 16th December 2016.
