About LAP Research
LAP Research is a registered national charity run by NHS physicians. We are the foremost UK charity researching diseases of the liver, pancreas, gallbladder, and biliary tree.
The charity has no offices, no salaries and zero overhead meaning that every penny raised is directed into pioneering crucial scientific research and education. We share our research findings with the medical profession whilst promoting a healthier lifestyle for everyone.
Our objectives are straightforward: Prevention. Earlier detection. Improved treatment. Higher survival rates.
“I was ready to end my life”
“I was done, until Emergency & HPB Surgeon, Giles Bond-Smith of LAP Research saved me”
Claire Aylott, 40, from Hertfordshire and mother of three, was first diagnosed 10 years ago with pancreatitis, having been rushed to hospital on her 30th birthday in horrific pain – however little did she know that day the journey which lay ahead for her and her family would be far worse.
