The American Gastroenterological Association is accepting applications for its AGA-Elsevier Gut Microbiome Pilot Research Award.
The objectives of the program are to help early-career investigators establish their research careers and support research projects that represent new directions for established investigators. Projects must focus on the relationship of gut microbiota to digestive health and disease. To that end, a single grant of $25,000 will be awarded to a researcher at any career stage in support of research on the relationship of gut microbiota to digestive health and disease.
To be eligible, applicants must hold an MD, PhD, or equivalent degree (e.g., MBChB, MBBS, DO) and have a full-time faculty position at an accredited institution in North America. AGA membership is required at the time of application. Women and minorities are strongly encouraged to apply.
