The American Gastroenterological Association Foundation welcomes applications for its AGA-R. Robert & Sally Funderburg Research Award in Gastric Cancer.
Through the program, a single grant of $50,000 a year for two years will be awarded to an established investigator in the field of gastric cancer research working to enhance the fundamental understanding of gastric cancer pathobiology or approaches to the prevention, treatment, or a cure for gastric cancer.
To be eligible, applicants must be established as an independent investigator in the field of gastric biology. MD applicants are considered “established” if seven or more years have elapsed following the completion of their clinical training (GI fellowship or its equivalent) at the start date of the award (i.e., January 2021). PhD applicants are considered “established” if seven or more years have elapsed following the awarding of the PhD degree and the start date of the award (i.e., January 2021). Applicants must hold an MD, PhD, and/or equivalent degree (e.g., MB, ChB, MBBS, DO); have a full-time faculty or equivalent position at an institution in North America (United States, Canada, and Mexico); and be an AGA member at the time of application submission.
