Support GI Research through the AGA Research Foundation


The way we diagnose and treat patients is thanks to years of research. Decades of research and discoveries by dedicated investigators have revolutionized the care of many digestive disease patients. As the charitable arm of the American Gastroenterological Association (AGA), the AGA Research Foundation contributes to this tradition of discovery.

Federal research funding is at risk. Promising early-stage investigators find it increasingly difficult to secure funding and many leave the field because they are unable to sustain a research career. The foundation provides a key source of funding at a critical juncture in a young investigator’s career.

“As a clinical researcher, funding for investigation is critical in scientific breakthroughs to promote more efficient and robust patient care. My project will provide novel insights into the role of distensibility in the treatment of patients with esophageal eosinophilia, potentially resulting in more efficient treatment selection and disease management.”

By joining others in donating to the AGA Research Foundation, you can help fill the funding gap and protect the next generation of investigators.

Your tax-deductible donation will make a critical difference in retaining talented GI scientists, like Dr. Kristle Lynch, whose research will impact the future care of patients.

Donate on the foundation’s website at or by mail to 4930 Del Ray Avenue, Bethesda, MD 20814.
