Beyond Celiac, in partnership with the Society for the Study of Celiac Disease (SSCD), is seeking applications from highly motivated and talented early career academic investigators for a grant that will fund celiac disease research. One of the goals of the two-year, $90,000 per year award is to attract promising researchers to the field of celiac disease.
Beyond Celiac is funding and managing the 2022-24 grant, while SSCD will oversee review of the applications and select the grant winner.
The award is intended to support a research project with the potential to advance the knowledge of celiac disease and accelerate discovery and development of treatments for celiac disease. It can be used for research focused on basic, translational, clinical or population studies, with higher priority given to translational research. Translational research turns observations made in the laboratory, clinic and community into interventions that improve the health of individuals and the public.
