Founded in 1897, the American Gastroenterological Association has grown to include more than 16,000 members from around the globe who are involved in all aspects of the science, practice, and advancement of gastroenterology. Every year, the foundation provides more than $2 million to spur discoveries in gastroenterology and hepatology.
To that end, AGA is inviting applications for the AGA-Takeda Pharmaceuticals Research Scholar Award in Inflammatory Bowel Disease. Through the program, grants of up to $100,000 a year for three years ($300,000 total) will be awarded to early-career faculty (investigator, instructor, research associate, or equivalent) working toward an independent career in inflammatory bowel disease research.
At the time of application submission, applicants may not hold or have held an NIH K01, K08, K23, K99, R00, R01, R21, R29, Veterans Affairs Career Development Award, or any award with similar objectives from non-federal sources (e.g., the American Liver Foundation, Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation). Applicants who have held a K12 or KL2 in the past are eligible to apply.
See the American Gastroenterological Association website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
