The objective of this AGA Research Foundation award is to support an established investigator in the field of gastric cancer research working to enhance our fundamental understanding of gastric cancer pathobiology or approaches to prevent, treat or cure gastric cancer.
At the time of application submission, applicants may not hold awards directly related to the proposed research from other organizations (i.e., government agency, foundation, academic institution, professional society, etc.). 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).
The recipient will be selected based on the following criteria: significance, investigator, innovation, approach, environment, evidence of institutional commitment and relevance to AGA’s mission. Preference is given to applicants proposing novel approaches.
A selection committee comprising members of the AGA Research Awards Panel will review proposals and select award recipients. Funding will commence January 2022.
