Support pilot research projects in gastroenterology-or hepatology-related areas. The objective of this award is to provide non-salary funds for new investigators to help establish their research careers or to support pilot projects that represent new research directions for established investigators. The intent of this award is to stimulate research in gastroenterology- or hepatology-related areas by providing time for investigators to obtain new data that can ultimately lead to subsequent grant applications for more substantial funding and duration. The recipient will be selected based on novelty, importance, feasibility, environment, institutional commitment and the overall likelihood that the project will lead to subsequent, more substantial grants.
