ANMS will be offering up to 2 grants – Deadline: October 11, 2024
ANMS is accepting grant applications as part of the ANMS Discovery Grants Program. We will provide support for senior GI fellows, postdoctoral research fellows, or Instructor/Assistant Professor-level faculty who are pursuing research careers in the area of neurogastroenterology and GI motility. Up to two grants of up to $30,000 each will be awarded in 2024 for qualified applicants including senior GI fellows, postdoctoral research fellows, or junior faculty (with no prior or current independent grant funding, i.e. PI status on an R level grant) pursuing projects spanning basic science, translational investigation, and clinical research pertaining to neurogastroenterology and GI motility.
Applicants must be members of the ANMS at the time of application and also the mentors must be ANMS members. The application deadline is October 11, 2024. Applicants will be notified on the outcome of their application by mid-January 2025 and the award period will begin March 1, 2025.
Objective: To assist promising trainee and junior faculty investigators in carrying out research projects in the area of neurogastroenterology and motility. The ANMS welcomes applications related to a broad range of topics and research methodologies that are relevant to this field. These grants are intended to support investigators generate sufficient preliminary data to obtain extramurally-funded research grants and to promote career development in the area of neurogastroenterology and motility.
Description: The ANMS Discovery Grants will provide support for senior GI fellows, postdoctoral research fellows, or Instructor/Assistant Professor-level faculty who are pursuing research careers in the area of neurogastroenterology and GI motility. Up to two grants of up to $30,000 each will be awarded in 2024 for qualified applicants including senior GI fellows, postdoctoral research fellows, or junior faculty (with no prior or current independent grant funding, i.e. PI status on an R level grant) pursuing projects spanning basic science, translational investigation, and clinical research pertaining to neurogastroenterology and GI motility. Grant applications should clearly describe how investigators intend to use the pilot data for future studies, how the work will enhance applications for extramural research funding, and where the work fits within their overall career goals.
Eligibility: Applicants must be a GI fellow trainee, post-doctoral research fellow, or a faculty member at the Instructor or Assistant Professor level with a primary appointment at an academic institution. Applicants must also be a member or trainee member of the ANMS at the time of application, and mentors must also be an ANMS member. Information on becoming a member of the ANMS can be found at www.motilitysociety.org. It is anticipated that successful candidates will maintain their membership with the ANMS.
The award is intended for individuals in early stages of their career at the level of senior GI fellow and/or postdoctoral research fellow who are pursuing a research career (“Trainee Investigators”), and junior faculty (position of Instructor or Assistant Professor) (“Faculty Investigators”). Faculty with Associate or Full Professor designations are ineligible. Successful candidates must exhibit evidence of a career trajectory leading towards the development of an independent research program.
Trainee Investigators are expected to devote at least 20% of their effort to this grant proposal, and a letter of support from the candidate’s Division Head or Department Chairperson must verify that the applicant will have at least 20% protected time for research if the application is successful. Each Trainee Investigator applicant must have a designated research mentor who will help oversee the research and guide the applicant’s career development. Applications from Trainee Investigators require a letter from the applicant’s mentor that outlines his/her role and the training and career development environment he/she will provide. Faculty Investigator applicants do not require a mentor letter, but should include a letter of support from the Investigator’s Division Head or Department Chairperson verifying access to sufficient protected time and resources to accomplish the aims of the proposal.
A goal of these grants is to help junior investigators collect preliminary data in order to become competitive for an NIH K- and/or R- award or the equivalent (including internal institutional awards, society career development awards, etc.). Trainee Investigators who have acquired a K- or equivalent career development award are not eligible for the award, whereas Faculty Investigators who have acquired independent R- or equivalent funding as a PI are not eligible for the award. Please note that if at any point during the submission or review process, it is revealed that an application is not eligible, the application will be withdrawn from consideration.
Applications will be evaluated by members of the Research Committee.
ANMS will be offering one grant – Deadline: October 11, 2024
Transition Award for faculty at more advanced stages of their career. Applicants have already received a career development Award or K-Award, but have not secured independent funding such as an R01 or equivalent grant. The Award is for $50,000 for 1 or 2 years to provide support towards securing independent funding.
