Deadline: June 6, 2014
Start Date: Oct. 1, 2014
This award provides up to $100,000 per year for two years (total $200,000) to an investigator interested in studying the role of Janus kinase (JAK) pathways in the pathophysiology and immunology of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).
The overall objective of this grant is to encourage innovative research into the role that Janus kinase pathways play in the pathophysiology and immunology of inflammatory bowel disease with the goal of ultimately improving IBD treatment.
• Candidates for this award must hold an MD, PhD or equivalent degree (e.g., MB, ChB, MBBS, DO) and a full-time faculty position at a nonprofit institution. There are no geographic or applicant age restrictions.
• AGA membership is not required to apply for this grant. However, if the grant recipient is not a member, he/she is encouraged to submit an application for membership
• Applications involving interventional studies of a Pfizer product are out of scope and will not be accepted.
• The grant will be paid directly to the recipient’s institution by Pfizer. The proposed budget may not exceed $100,000/year for two years inclusive of all costs. Funding will commence October 2014.
•The grant recipient will be responsible for providing Pfizer with interim and final scientific progress reports.
However, ownership of the study data rests with the investigator and his/her institution. Submission of the results to Gastroenterology or other refereed scientific journal is strongly encouraged. All publications, presentations and abstracts arising from work funded by this grant must acknowledge funding from Pfizer.
The recipient will be selected based on the following criteria: significance and implications of the research to the treatment of IBD, innovation, approach, the applicant’s research environment, and evidence of institutional commitment.
A selection committee comprised of members of the AGA Research Awards Panel will review the proposals and select the award recipient. The Panel has sole responsibility for selecting the grant recipient.

American College of Sports Medicine Clinical Research Award
Deadline: Jan 16, 2015
Amount: $5,000.00 USD
Number Given: 1
ACSM is pleased to announce that the Clinical Sports Medicine Endowment will fund an annual award of $5,000 for research that is directly related to clinical sports medicine. This clinical research award is open to MDs, DOs, PTs, ATCs, and other medical professionals (ACSM members only) involved in the conduct of patient-based clinical research.
The purpose of the award is to stimulate:
1. clinical research in sports medicine and
2. research in clinical sports medicine.
Clinical research in sports medicine must be derived from active care of athletes, such as prevention strategies, treatment protocols, or treatment outcomes. Research in clinical sports medicine must be directly related to issues of active care of athletes, such as pathogenesis, pathophysiology, biomechanics, or environmental issues. The proposals must demonstrate the study’s direct relationship to one of these purposes. The active patient care must be provided to physically active recreational, competitive or elite athletes. It is anticipated that the completed research will be presented at a highlighted session at the ACSM Annual Meeting.
The 2015 ACSM Foundation Research Grant Program application will be available in the fall. There are two parts to the application. Both Part A and Part B must be submitted as one complete PDF application. Applicants for student research grants must have graduate student status during the term of the grant to be considered for funding. Applicants must be current members of ACSM at the time of submitting an application to be funded. Grants are open to all ACSM members, including international members. However, the NASA initiative is open to U.S. residents only.
The deadline for the 2015 grant application is 5:00 PM ET on January 16, 2015.

International Society for Infectious Diseases Small Grants Program
The Small Grants Program is designed to fund pilot research projects by young investigators living and working in developing countries. The goal is to support and foster the professional development of young individuals (less than 40 years of age) in the field of human infectious diseases research by helping them to acquire additional skills and data to apply for other grants. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to investigations of the epidemiology, pathophysiology, diagnosis or treatment of infectious diseases, the epidemiology and control of hospital-acquired infections, and modeling of cost effective interventions.
Proposals will be reviewed by members of the Professional Development Working Group and decisions made in collaboration with the President and the Program Director.
Upon completion of the project, a written report of the project must be sent to the Society. The Society encourages recipients of grants to present their results at scientific meetings and to submit them for publication in peer-reviewed journals.
Up to eight grants of up to US $6,000 each will be awarded annually. The deadline for submission of proposals is April 1 (notification after June 1).
