The Gastrointestinal & Liver Physiology Section Takeda Research Awards are designed to recognize trainees and junior level faculty who are engaged in gastrointestinal and liver research. These awards include a monetary honorarium, reimbursement of the EB advance registration fee and complimentary admission to the GI & Liver Section Banquet at EB2018. The awards are given based on competitive appraisal of abstracts submitted to the Experimental Biology meeting. Separate awards will recognize 1) work done while enrolled as an undergraduate, 2) doctoral/medical student, 3) during the first five years of postdoctoral or medical residency training and 4) done as a junior level faculty who is within 10 years of having received a higher degree (Ph.D., M.D., or D.V.M). The final distribution among these awards will depend on the quality and the number of applicants. Awardees are notified of winning the competition in advance of EB.

All applicants are required to attend the GI & Liver Section Trainee Poster Symposium and present their posters.  Top ranking research awardees will be required to give a 10 min platform oral presentation during the poster symposium, and will be notified in advance of EB if they will be making a presentation.  Additionally, all advance research awardees may be asked to participate in the judging of poster presentations at the 2018 GI & Liver Trainee Poster Symposium. In this judging competition, applicants who did not receive an advance research award will have a separate opportunity to win a an award during the Poster Symposium.

To qualify for these awards, the applicant must be a first author on an abstract submitted to a GIL Topic Category [to be determined] at the Experimental Biology 2018 meeting, and either the applicant or a sponsor (in case of trainee awards) must be a member of APS. All applicants must upload a copy of their abstract and CV for consideration (and a half-page statement of research accomplishments if a junior faculty candidate). Awardees must attend the Experimental Biology meeting to receive the cash prize and will be recognized at the EB 2018 Gastrointestinal & Liver Physiology Section Banquet and Business Meeting.

All application materials must be completed online by December 21, 2017.

Applicants who have already won a Research Recognition or Takeda Research Award in the EB2018 competition will not be eligible for the Poster Award in the same year.
