Founded in 1897, the American Gastroenterological Association has grown to include more than sixteen thousand members from around the globe who are involved in all aspects of the science, practice, and advancement of gastroenterology. Each year, the foundation provides more than $2 million to help catalyze discoveries in gastroenterology and hepatology.
AGA currently is inviting applications for the AGA-Takeda Pharmaceuticals Research Scholar Award in Celiac Disease. Through the program, grants of up to $100,000 a year for up to three years will be awarded to early-career faculty (i.e., investigator, instructor, research associate, or equivalent) working toward an independent career in celiac disease research.
At the time of application submission, candidates may not hold or have held an NIH K01, K08, K23, K99, R00, R01, R21, R29, Veterans Affairs Career Development Award, or other award with similar objectives from non-federal sources (such as the American Liver Foundation, Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation). Candidates who have held a K12 or KL2 in the past are eligible to apply. Candidates with an active K12 or KL2 may apply in the final year of their active K12 or KL2 as long as the award will end before the Research Scholar Award term begins
