Date:7/1/2010

The American Gastroenterological Association (AGA) Foundation has announced the 2010 AGA Foundation Student Research Fellowship Award recipients. Funded by The Eli and Edythe Broad Foundation, the awards are intended to stimulate interest in research careers in digestive diseases.

"Student research fellowships allow us to expose young scholars to potential life-shaping experiences in medical research and provide them with an invaluable, functional context in which to consider their options," said Nicholas F. LaRusso, MD, AGAF, chairman of the AGA Foundation. "The AGA Foundation remains committed to continuing to help fund these gifted students the future of our field. The grants we give to high school students who demonstrate high potential for careers in digestive diseases research underscore our commitment to significant research advances."

Ten awards of $2,500 each were given to support high school students interested in performing digestive disease or nutrition research for a minimum of 10 weeks. The 2010 grant recipients are:

  • Asim Ahmad, North Haven High School, New Haven, CT.
  • Mary Brown, Five Knolls Academy, Waxhaw, NC.
  • Rebecca Fine, Noble and Greenough School, Newton, MA.
  • Dylan Hans, Riverdale Country School, New York.
  • Janet Keku, Chapel Hill High School, NC.
  • Ryan Lam, Upper Canada College*, Toronto, Ontario.
  • Pooja Lineswala, John Marshall High School, Rochester, MN.
  • Nolan Neu, Weston High School, MA.
  • Eitan Neugut, Frisch School, Paramus, NJ.
  • Hannah Weinberg-Wolf, New Trier High School, Glencoe, IL.

*Teaches high school level education.

The Student Research Fellowship Awards program was created by the AGA more than a decade ago to stimulate interest in gastroenterological research careers in high school, college and medical school students. To date, the program has identified nearly 80 high school, undergraduate and graduate students to participate in the program. Selected through a rigorous national application process, the students have participated in research at such distinguished institutions as the University of Chicago, Johns Hopkins University, Mayo Clinic, University of Michigan, University of Pennsylvania and others.

Participants in the program have subsequently been admitted as undergraduates at prestigious universities nationwide, including the University of Southern California, Notre Dame University, Harvard University, University of Virginia, Rice University and others. Virtually all have indicated an intention of continuing their studies in medically related fields.
