Additional Information - The objective of the AGA Research Foundation Research Scholar Award (RSA) is to support early-career investigators working toward independent and productive research careers in digestive diseases by ensuring that a major proportion of their time is protected for research (i.e., a minimum of 75 percent effort dedicated to the proposed project). The award will support junior faculty (not fellows) who have demonstrated exceptional promise and have some record of accomplishment in health disparities research. Projects must focus on the pathophysiology, epidemiology, prevention, diagnosis, treatment or patient outcomes of digestive disease or disorder that disproportionately affects racial or ethnic minority populations in North America.
Applicants for this award must hold an MD, PhD and/or equivalent degree (e.g., MBChB, MBBS, DO), and a full-time faculty or equivalent position at an institution in North America (U.S., Canada or Mexico) by the start date (i.e., July 2021) of this award.
Applicants performing any type of research (basic, translational, clinical) relevant to digestive disorders are eligible to apply.
