Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America - Scientific Conferences and Workshops ($ 10,000)
The Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) invites applications for its Scientific Conferences and Workshops. The application submission deadline is July 1, 2014. Funding is between $ 5,000 and $ 10,000. Proposed workshops should be open to the general scientific community and include young investigators in the program. Eligibility is not restricted by citizenship or geography.
CCFA recognizes the value of supporting scientific meetings, conferences, and workshops lasting one or more days where persons assemble to exchange information and views or explore topics that are relevant to its scientific mission. The CCFA is especially supportive of organizations that develop scientific meetings or workshops that include trainees during the formative time of their education to participate and hopefully pursue careers in digestive health research relevant to IBD.
CCFA's guiding mission is to stimulate and encourage innovative research in the basic biomedical and clinical sciences, which is likely to increase our understanding of the etiology, pathogenesis, therapy, and prevention of Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis (collectively known as inflammatory bowel disease or IBD). In addition, the foundation offers training awards to encourage the early developmental stages of individuals with research potential for a career of independent basic and/or clinical investigation in IBD.
