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

We are always on the frontline fighting for life
We need your help please

Over recent months, our trustees have been on the frontline of the NHS. As such, all planned fundraising events have been cancelled.
To enable us to continue our research into these terrible diseases, we need your help please.
