IFFGD Travel Awards

Background of IFFGD’s Travel Awards

Travel Award Winners 2023
Travel Award Winners 2023

IFFGD first offered Travel Awards in 2023. To date, we have presented Awards to 23 young investigators from around the world.

These travel awards were made possible through the money raised during IFFGD’s Annual Virtual Wellness Events. We are very grateful to all who participated in this event and donated in support of this research.

These Awards recognize the accomplishments of investigators who are engaged in significant research in the field of functional gastrointestinal (GI) disease. Our intent is to encourage the participation of clinicians and scientists in multidisciplinary efforts aimed at advancing the understanding of functional GI and motility disorders in adults and in children that can ultimately lead to better treatments and cures.

The IFFGD Travel Award recipients are determined by a Selection Committee comprised of internationally recognized experts in the field.

To be eligible, the applicant must have completed their highest level of training no more than seven years prior to application. They should also have demonstrated a record of accomplishment, and be currently active in investigating basic, translational, or clinical aspects of functional GI or motility disorders, or other neurogastroenterology topics.

The 2024 Virtual Digestive Health Wellness & Walk held Saturday, July 6, 2024 – Saturday, July 13, 2024 is a charitable event to raise money to support gastrointestinal illness research. 

Like a traditional walk, participants register to be active to get credit for steps taken during the event. However, this event goes beyond a step goal by also awarding points to participants for self-care, wellness, and outreach activities.

By adding these alternative activities, we hope that anyone that wants to participate, can participate. #Moves4GIhealth24
