Make a difference – support AGA’s Research Awards program


Many breakthroughs have been achieved through gastroenterological and hepatological research over the past century, forming the basis of the modern medical practice. As the charitable arm of the American Gastroenterological Association (AGA), the AGA Research Foundation contributes to this tradition of discovery by providing a key source of funding at a critical juncture in a young researcher’s career.

“The Research Scholar Award will have a pivotal effect on my future career,” said Michael Dougan, MD, PhD, Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, 2017 Research Scholar Award recipient. “This award enables me to establish my own research infrastructure, and lay the experimental foundations for my future work as a clinician‐scientist striving to understand the complex interplay between the immune system, metabolism, and cancer.”

By joining others in donating to the AGA Research Foundation, you will help to foster a new pipeline of scientists – the next generation of leaders in GI.
