Deadline Extended, New Criteria for Research Award

March 27, 2012

The criteria for the AGA-Takeda Research Scholar Award in GERD were recently expanded to allow support for research in Barrett’s esophagus and the application deadline has been extended to July 13.

The AGA-Takeda Research Scholar Award in GERD and Barrett’s Esophagus is available to young investigators working toward independent careers in gastroenterology or related areas. The criteria for the award were recently expanded to allow support for research in Barrett’s esophagus. In addition, unlike other research scholar awards which require a 70 percent research effort and exclude candidates who have received an NIH K series award, this award has no such restrictions. 
 
The application deadline has been extended to July 13. Apply online at www.gastro.org/foundation.
 
Support of this program by Takeda Pharmaceuticals North America Incorporated is gratefully acknowledged.
