The Gastrointestinal & Liver Physiology Section Trainee and Junior Faculty Research Recognition Award are designed to recognize trainees and junior level faculty who are engaged in gastrointestinal and liver research. 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 (PhD, MD, or DVM). 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.
When applying for this award you will also be included in the poster competition at the Gastrointestinal and Liver Section Trainee Poster Symposium at Experimental Biology. Even if you don’t receive a Gastrointestinal & Liver Physiology Section Trainee and Junior Faculty Research Recognition Award, you are automatically included in the poster presentation at EB. The final decision of POSTER awards will be based on the quality of research and the oral presentation of the poster by the applicant to the judges at the Trainee Symposium (including the ability to answer questions regarding the presented research). Applicants who have already won a Trainee and Junior Faculty Research Recognition in the EB2020 competition will not be eligible for the Poster Award in the same year.
All awardees will be recognized at the EB2020 Gastrointestinal & Liver Physiology Section Banquet and Business Meeting.
Poster Awards are sponsored by Data Sciences International.

In this judging competition, applicants who did not receive an advance travel award will have a separate opportunity to win a travel award during the Poster Symposium.
