This award provides $75,000 salary support to enable promising senior pediatric gastroenterology fellows to spend an additional year engaged in full-time research and patient care related to pediatric inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). The goal is to prepare physicians for independent research careers in IBD by allowing them:
- To further develop a promising clinical, epidemiologic, outcomes or basic science project, or
- To build on previously acquired skills and make a transition to IBD Research.
- To learn new techniques and/or clinical skills by pursuing a formal curriculum at either their sponsoring institution and/or as a visitor for an extended period at a pediatric or internal medicine IBD center at another institution.
