The American Gastroenterological Association Foundation welcomes applications for the AGA-Caroline Craig Augustyn & Damian Augustyn Award in Digestive Cancer.
The program will provide a single grant of $40,000 to an early-career investigator who currently holds a federal or non-federal career development award devoted to research relevant to the pathogenesis, prevention, diagnosis, or treatment of digestive cancer. Applicants performing any type of research (basic, translational, clinical) relevant to digestive disorders are eligible to apply. Applicants who are physician-scientists, female, and/or from a racial/ethnic group underrepresented in biomedical research are strongly encouraged to apply.
To be eligible, applicants must hold an MD, PhD, and/or equivalent degree (e.g., MB, ChB, MBBS, DO); hold a full-time faculty or equivalent position at an institution in North America (United States, Canada, and Mexico); and an NIH K series (e.g., K01, K08, K23, K99, R00) or other federal or non-federal career development award of at least four years’ duration. (There must be at least one year remaining on the award by January 1, 2021.) AGA membership is required at the time of applicant submission.
