American Gastroenterological Association: Health Disparities Research Grants

The American Gastroenterological Association invites applications for its AGA Pilot Research Award in Digestive Disease Health Disparities.

Grants of up to $30,000 will be awarded to recipients at any career stage establishing new research projects in health and healthcare disparities in digestive diseases. Projects must be related to understanding the causes of such disparities or testing interventions to eliminate them. They may focus on the pathophysiology, epidemiology, prevention, diagnosis, patient access to or quality of care, treatment, or patient outcomes of digestive diseases or disorders associated with a health difference closely linked with economic, social, or environmental disadvantages. Through the program, there are numerous awards available:

AGA Pilot Research Award in Health Disparities: Open to investigations of disparities associated with any digestive disease or disorder. A total of two awards are available.

AGA-Amgen Pilot Research Award in Health Disparities: Open to investigations of disparities associated with any digestive disease or disorder. One award is available.

Applicants performing any research (basic, translational, clinical) relevant to digestive disorders are eligible to apply. Applicants who are physician-scientists, female, or from racial/ethnic groups underrepresented in biomedical research are strongly encouraged to apply.

Applicants must hold an MD, PhD, and/or equivalent degree (e.g., MBBS, MBChB, DO) and a full-time faculty or equivalent position at an institution in North America (United States, Canada, or Mexico). AGA membership is required at the time of application submission.

Please contact Gwen Allouch if you are interested in applying to this opportunity.
