The grants have been awarded to four exceptional young gastroenterologists who guarantee to make significant strides in neuro-scientific gastrointestinal research.

The AGA-Athena Troxel Blackburn Analysis Scholar Award in Neuroenteric Disease will provide $270,000 over 3 years to youthful investigators who are interested in advancing analysis in neuroenteric disease. AGA will match this donation, producing a $2.25 million endowment. The entire objective of the study scholar award is to enable young investigators to build up independent and productive research careers in digestive illnesses by making certain a major proportion of their own time is shielded for analysis. This award is intended to support research in neuroenteric disease, which impacts the brain-gut axis, or the relationship between your enteric nervous system and central nervous system, and includes irritable bowel syndrome . The award will fund a young investigator working in the field of neuroenteric disease and, specifically, conducting research which will enhance the fundamental knowledge of IBS in order to ultimately prevent or develop a cure for the disease.
