Liver Research Club (LIREC)

Is a non-governmental association (NGO) made up of people interested in interdisciplinary research in the field of hepatology and the implementation of health projects with an impact on the community. LIREC became an NGO in 2019 and brings together specialists in complementary fields of activity (resident doctors and specialists, psychologists, nurses, SMURD staff, financial and procurement experts, trainers, firefighters, etc.) who have as common goal the implementation of sustainable projects in the field of health that would have a real impact in the community, the promotion of romanian medical research and the promotion of evidence-based medicine and state-of-the-art medical practice.

Wanting to promote research excellence and community involvement, LIREC’s activities are oriented in three main directions:

1) Organizing volunteer activities and health promotion campaigns: prevention of viral hepatitis, promotion of responsible alcohol consumption, promotion of healthy food consumption, investment in hospital infrastructure, investment in medical equipment and supplies

2) Training for clinical practice and research: annual organization of grant writing workshops, data management, statistical analysis and scientific presentation, abdominal ultrasound, case presentations, scientific sessions, coordination of doctoral theses ;

3) Carrying out research projects funded by public or private sources in the following areas of interest: health promotion, increasing access to state-of-the-art medical services, advanced liver disease, non-invasive diagnosis of liver disease, decompensated liver cirrhosis and complications digestive tract cancers, fatty liver disease and metabolic syndrome, the organization of premedical first aid courses, etc.

The Liver Research Club Association is therefore the avant-garde of multidisciplinary research in Romania. Through our activities we want to train specialists with interdisciplinary skills, future leaders in the medical field in Romania and in Europe who through training, professionalism, interdisciplinarity and selfless involvement contribute to the sustainable development of research in Romania and of the Romanian medical system.

LIREC benefits within the organization from a technical and financial department that carries out activity mainly in relation to the implementation of projects financed by accessing non-reimbursable funds, bringing together experts from complementary fields of activity (medical, project management, training, financial, administrative).
