The University Hospitals Division of Gastroenterology and Liver Disease, supported by The Lansing C. Hoskins Education and Research Fund, proudly announces a program to promote and support new research initiatives in digestive diseases undertaken by fellows and junior faculty. The primary goal of the program is to provide awardees with initial funds to develop new digestive health related research initiatives leading to robust careers and to new advances in understanding, treating and preventing digestive diseases.

Limited awards of up to $5,000/year will be made and projects should be completed upon graduation for fellow recipients or within two years for junior faculty. Awards are intended to support regulatory start-up, research costs, and data collection. It is expected that the results will be presented to divisional faculty and fellows. The project may also be used to provide preliminary data for applications for larger research grants in areas related to digestive diseases. For additional endowment details, click here.
