The AGA–Pfizer Fellowship-to-Faculty Transition Award from the AGA Research Foundation and Pfizer facilitates the transition of postdoctoral or clinical fellows to independent research careers. The fellowship provides clinical or postdoctoral fellows seeking to protect time for clinical or translational research in preparation for careers as independent investigators in gastroenterology, hepatology, pancreatology or closely allied fields. This award will fund research related to inflammation and immunology. Projects must focus on the epidemiology, prevention, diagnosis, treatment or patient outcomes of a digestive disease or disorder with research related to inflammation and immunology. Applicants must hold MD, PhD or equivalent degree and based in the USA, Canada or Mexico. Applicants must be members of AGA. Female investigators and underrepresented researchers are strongly encouraged to apply. The fellowship provides 130,000 USD over 2 years (no indirect costs).
This is an annual award and the next applications open on May 1, 2023, and close on September 13, 2023.
