Help spark scientific breakthroughs with the AGA Research Foundation


 

The way we diagnose and treat patients is the result of years of research. But securing the future of the field is no small task. 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. A donation to the charitable arm of the American Gastroenterological Association (AGA), the AGA Research Foundation, will help fill the funding gap and contribute to this tradition of discovery.

The foundation provides a key source of funding at a critical juncture in a young investigator’s career.

Help spark the scientific breakthroughs of today, so clinicians will have the tools to improve care tomorrow. Your tax-deductible donation will make a critical difference in retaining talented GI scientists, like Won Jae Huh, MD, whose research will impact the future care of patients.

“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.”

“This funding mechanism will secure my research time to investigate signaling pathways involved in the pathogenesis of Ménétrier’s disease, and will provide resources and support to launch my research career. The results from my research project will be helpful for treating Ménétrier’s disease patients.”
