SSAT and Research Foundation of the ASCRS Joint Research Award
Past Recipients

The SSAT/Research Foundation of the ASCRS Joint Research Award

This award is designed to assist in the development of young faculty members of the SSAT and the American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons (ASCRS) who want to develop an active research program in colorectal diseases. Specifically, this is designed to support research that is focused on diseases of the lower intestinal tract, including but not limited to, inflammatory bowel disease, cancer, or benign conditions of the lower GI tract. The goal of this project is to foster stronger fellowship between these two Societies through greater scientific collaboration and more comprehensive young faculty mentorship.

The $50,000 annual award will be equally supported by SSAT and The Research Foundation of the ASCRS (The Research Foundation). The second year of funding will be conditional on submission and presentation of a progress report at the end of the first year of funding, which will be reviewed and approved by the research committees of both the SSAT and The Research Foundation. It is expected that the recipient submit an abstract arising from his/her jointly funded research for presentation consideration at the SSAT and/or ASCRS annual meeting(s), as well as manuscripts to either the Journal of Gastrointestinal Surgery, the official journal of the SSAT, or Diseases of the Colon and Rectum, official journal of ASCRS, for publication consideration. The society will work with the recipient at the conclusion of the jointly funded research to determine which meeting(s) and Journal(s) s/he will be submitting.
