Outstanding young gastroenterologists receive AGA Foundation 2010 Research Scholars Award
Date:4/27/2010

The Foundation for Digestive Health and Nutrition (FDHN) has announced the 2010 American Gastroenterological Association (AGA) Foundation research scholars. The grants have been awarded to seven outstanding young gastroenterologists who promise to make significant strides in the field of gastrointestinal research.

"The current economic times have introduced new funding challenges, and research funding remains elusive for all scientists, especially those just beginning their career, despite their tremendous promise," said Sidney Cohen, MD, AGAF, chairman of the Foundation for Digestive Health and Nutrition. "The AGA Foundation for Digestive Health and Nutrition remains committed to continuing to help fund these gifted scholars. The pace of discovery must be sustained, and it is up to those of us in the profession to make it happen. The 75 grants we give out to gifted researchers each year boldly represents our commitment to progress."

  • Ype deJong, MD, PhD, Weill Medical College of Cornell University, New York: Role of innate immune activation on T cell function in mice infected with hepatitis C.
  • Porfirio Nava-Dominguez, PhD, Emory University, Atlanta, GA: Role of desmosomal cadherins in regulation of intestinal epithelial barrier function in irritable bowel disease.
