The Gastric Cancer Foundation recently announced the formation of a research partnership with the American Gastroenterological Association (AGA) and a confirmed timeline for awarding newly funded research grants for upper gastrointestinal tract cancers.
Wayne Feinstein, Chairman of the Board of Directors, Gastric Cancer Foundation, announced the development of a significant research partnership with the American Gastroenterological Association. He noted that in 2014 the first AGA-GCF Research Scholar Award in Gastric and Esophageal Cancer will be awarded to fund young investigators with the tools needed to focus their research on gastrointestinal tract cancers.
Members of the AGA Research Awards Panel and representatives of the Gastric Cancer Foundation will jointly review proposals and select award recipients. Applications are due by December 13, 2013. Additional information is available at www.gastro.org/foundation. ■
