2011 Award Winners

Background

IFFGD first offered Research Awards in 2003 (and Research Grants in 2007). To date, we have presented Awards to 38 researchers from around the world. 

These Awards recognize the accomplishments of investigators who are engaged in significant research in the field of functional gastrointestinal (GI) disease. Our intent is to encourage the participation of clinicians and scientists in multidisciplinary efforts aimed at advancing the understanding of functional GI and motility disorders in adults and in children that can ultimately lead to better treatments and cures.

The IFFGD Research Award recipients are determined by a Selection Committee comprised of internationally recognized experts in the field.

To be eligible, the investigators must have completed an MD or PhD, have demonstrated functional GI disease research activity, and be currently active in such research.

 

Comments from Past IFFGD Award Recipients

"Awards for prior research provide a sense of affirmation and meaning, especially in an area that is often underappreciated or understudied, such as the complex problems of functional illnesses. Perhaps more importantly, the resources allowed me to perform some preliminary studies."

- Klaus Bielefeldt, MD. 2003 IFFGD Research Award Recipient

"The IFFGD research award helped me get the recognition and visibility that was needed to sustain funding for my research in children. It has been an enormous asset to me and eventually also to the children whose lives will be touched by my research."

- Miranda Van Tilburg, PhD. 2007 IFFGD Research Award Recipient

"The award was invaluable, as it provided some pump priming funds to develop some of my research. It is nice that by being awarded an IFFGD research prize, you can use the funds flexibly to prioritize areas of research, which might not normally get funded."

- Shaheen Hamdy, MD. 2005 IFFGD research Award Recipient
