The objective of this AGA Research Foundation Pilot Research Award is to provide funds for early career investigators to help establish their research careers or to support projects that represent new research directions for established investigators. Projects must focus on new research areas that could improve the diagnosis and treatment of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).
Applicants for this award must hold an MD, PhD and/or equivalent degree (e.g., MBBS, MBChB, DO) and a full-time faculty position or equivalent at an institution in North America (U.S., Canada or Mexico).
AGA membership is required at the time of application submission. Please visit the AGA membership page or call 301-654-2055 for membership information.
Applicants performing any type of research (basic, translational, clinical) relevant to digestive disorders are eligible to apply.
Applicants who are physician-scientists, female or from racial/ethnic groups underrepresented in biomedical research are strongly encouraged to apply.
At the time of application submission, applicants may not hold awards directly related to the proposed research from another organization (e.g., government agency, foundation, academic institution, professional society). If the applicant is granted the award and notified of a comparable award from another agency prior to the first payment of this award, the recipient must select one of the two awards (i.e., the recipient may not retain both awards).
A selection committee comprising members of the AGA Research Awards Panel will review the proposals and select the award recipients. Funding will commence in April 2022.
