ASGE announces grant recipients in annual research awards program

Oak Brook, IL, Feb. 1, 2005 The American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE) and the ASGE Foundation announced this year's institutional winners of medical research grants, as part of the ASGE's annual Research & Outcomes & Effectiveness Awards Program.

The ASGE Research Committee received 31 applications for research project funding last fall and granted a total of $234,700 to the 11 institutions that were chosen to receive grants, including nine from the United States and two from Canada.

"Each grant application undergoes a vigorous peer review process," stated James Scheiman, MD, chair of the ASGE Awards Committee and a member of the Gastroenterology Division of the University of Michigan.

"With the help of generous donations through the ASGE Foundation, the ASGE provides the opportunity for gastrointestinal endoscopic investigators to answer key questions regarding the clinical application of new endoscopic technology," Dr. Scheiman said. He also indicated that a goal of the ASGE Research Committee is to help launch medical research careers for members of the recipient research teams.

The ASGE Awards Program was initiated in 1985 and has awarded more than $3 million in research dollars. Its objective is to foster research in gastrointestinal endoscopy both within and outside of academic centers.

The institutions receiving ASGE grants in this 20th year of the program include:
Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, OH;
The Cleveland Clinic Foundation, Cleveland;
Emory University School of Medicine, Atlanta;
