Calling all junior faculty: the deadline is fast approaching to submit your application for an AGA Research Scholar Award (RSA). The AGA Research Foundation supports investigators in all areas of research — basic, clinical and translational — and encourages you to submit your science for consideration.
By applying for an AGA grant, you are opening an opportunity to:
- Have protected time for research.
- Set up your lab and gather preliminary data that will be critical as you develop future funding proposals.
- Start defining your own scientific niche, different from that of your mentor(s).
If your goal is to become a GI researcher, an AGA grant will allow you to devote time to building your career.
The following awards will close on Dec. 14, 2018:
