The YAEL foundation is dedicated to promoting medical research, education and practice. Our particular focus is on autoimmune and inflammatory liver diseases (i.e. autoimmune hepatitis (AIH), primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC), and primary biliary cholangitis (PBC)). We have been providing grants and prices for research projects and organized seminars for patient information. Our main ongoing activity is to support the ‘YAEL Clinic for Autoimmune Liver Diseases’ as part of the ‘Martin Zeitz Centre for Rare Diseases’ located at the University Medical Centre Hamburg-Eppendorf, providing passionate and dedicated patient care and a clinical research infrastructure for autoimmune liver diseases. The YAEL foundation is a non-profit organization acknowledged by the State of Hamburg.

YAEL physician-patient seminar
The YAEL foundation supports the ‘YAEL Clinic for Autoimmune Liver Diseases’ as part of the ‘Martin Zeitz Centre for Rare Diseases’ located at the University Medical Centre Hamburg-Eppendorf (UKE), e.g. by funding a study nurse since 2014.
Every two years, the YAEL foundation organizes a physician-patient seminar for patients and their relatives. This year’s seminar takes place on April 7, 2018. Patients and relatives will be provided opportunity to get actual information about autoimmune liver diseases’ treatment options and to exchange experiences and views.
