2013 Grant Announcement – Call for Applications
Medical Research Funding Opportunities
The International Foundation for Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders (IFFGD) is seeking applications for research grants.
Grant awards of $40,000 in direct costs each are available to three (3) investigators for innovative research related to idiopathic gastroparesis.
We are seeking proposals for research in humans that will ultimately lead to improvements in the understanding of idiopathic gastroparesis, its pathophysiology, and the care of patients.
The mission of IFFGD is patient-oriented. Our goal is to fund high-quality research. A preference will be given to clinical research, as well as basic research that is translational in nature.
Applicants must have completed an MD, PhD, or equivalent degree. Successful applicants must agree to acknowledge IFFGD support in any publications that result from the research, and to submit a final report to IFFGD within 18 months of initial receipt of funding (NIH form PHS 2590 or equivalent format).
The deadline for submitting applications is midnight, Tuesday, September 3, 2013.
