Gastric Cancer Foundation Partners With American Gastroenterological Association
The American Gastroenterological Association is a trusted voice in the GI community and includes 17,000 members from around the globe who are involved in all aspects of gastroenterology. GCF’s new partnership with AGA is a powerful opportunity to provide critical funding that will enable aggressive researchers to pursue breakthroughs to cure stomach cancer. In the US, stomach cancer currently receives just 0.4 percent of federal funding for cancer research. We are proud to join with AGA to advance research and carry out our mission.
The AGA-Gastric Cancer Foundation Research Scholar Award in Gastric and Esophageal Cancer will provide young researchers with $90,000 per year for three years. Applicants must be interested in better understanding gastric or esophageal cancer with research focused on either disease.
Researchers interested in applying for the AGA-Gastric Cancer Foundation Research Scholar Award in Gastric and Esophageal Cancer should visit www.gastro.org/foundation. The application deadline is December 13, 2013. Members of the AGA Research Awards Panel and representatives of the Gastric Cancer Foundation will jointly review the proposals and select the award recipients. Funding will commence in July 2014.
