Endoscopic Research Awards
Submission Deadline: January 31, 2014 at 5pm CST.
ASGE Endoscopic Research Awards are offered to physicians for projects in basic, translational and clinical endoscopic research. The ASGE is particularly interested in endoscopic research pertaining to colorectal cancer, Barrett's esophagus, endoscopy training/credentialing/simulation, endoscopic issues specific to under-represented minorities (defined as women and individuals of diverse ethnic/cultural backgrounds), measuring/improving quality and efficiency in endoscopy, endoscope reprocessing and infection control (especially vacuum canisters), endoscopy/anesthesia monitoring and preparation (especially CO2 monitoring), comparative effectiveness with competing technologies/therapies, NOTES, novel endoscopic treatments for obesity, endoscopic ultrasound, endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), and other endoscopically-guided imaging/intervention. The research committee will consider funding "seed" projects if there is an explicit outline for subsequent projects, and their funding plan (e.g. NIH, VA Merit), based on the preliminary data generated by the proposed pilot.
To foster research in routine and advanced gastrointestinal endoscopy.
Candidate must be an ASGE member (ASGE membership at the time of application is a requirement for eligibility for grants and awards), be an MD (or have equivalent degree), and be currently practicing in a gastrointestinal endoscopy-related academic institution or private practice setting in North America (international applications will be considered as described below). Candidates who are delinquent on prior ASGE research grant progress reports are not eligible for future ASGE funding. If the candidate is a trainee, there must be a letter from the Division Chief confirming the trainee's ongoing appointment at the institution for the duration of the grant, and their position title, and/or a contingency plan.
Grants may be requested for up to $75,000 in total funding, and spread over two years of study. Note: If the application is not selected for the Quality in Endoscopy Research Award, it will still be considered for an Endoscopic Research Award.
Requests for funding "seed" projects that will lead to further research, as well as larger requests for definitive clinical trials will be considered. In order to maximize the funds available for research, money for travel to meetings will not be provided, nor will funding be provided for indirect costs.
Grants are awarded based on the scientific merit of the proposal and assessment of the investigator's ability to complete the project (supportive environment, experience, training, availability of patients and other resources needed). The proposed research project must be approved by the ASGE Research Committee and should also be of such quality as to lead to presentation at Digestive Disease Week® and subsequent full publication. One objective of these ASGE awards is the eventual submission of larger research funding requests, including federal funding, and proposals with such potential will be given priority.
ASGE International Members are eligible to apply for an Endoscopic Research Award (Current ASGE membership is a requirement of eligibility for grants and awards). The ASGE Research Committee will consider funding one international project for up to $75,000. The project justification should explain the relevance of the project to the ASGE membership, and should explain if there are unique reasons why an international location for the project might be more feasible than in North America. All other standards listed above will apply to international applicants. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or Liz O'Keefe at 630.570.5623 for more information on eligibility.
American Academy of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery Foundation Resident Research Grant Sponsored by Cook Medical
The purpose of this grant is to stimulate original resident research with a preference for proposals related to paranasal sinus disease, salivary gland disease, sleep medicine, voice therapy, airway, ultrasound, tissue engineering, dysphagia and the cranial base.
Any resident of an accredited otolaryngology-head and neck surgery training program in the U.S. or Canada is eligible to apply for the Resident Research Grant sponsored by Cook Medical. All applicants must be members in good standing of AAO-HNS.
Proposed projects may be related to paranasal sinus disease, salivary gland disease, sleep medicine, voice therapy, airway, ultrasound and tissue engineering. Applications must be accompanied by a letter of support from the applicant’s Department Chair verifying that the applicant will be permitted to devote an appropriate amount of time to the conduct and timely completion of the proposed research project. Resident applicants must also work with a faculty member designated as a co-investigator. A letter of support must also be obtained from the co-investigator. Applicants must obtain letters of support/understanding from all key personnel on the project.
Projects which are clinical trials of unproven drugs or devices are outside the areas of Foundation interest for purposes of resident research grants.
1. Amount: $10,000 maximum total direct costs.
