First Annual Rome Foundation Young Investigator Mentoring Program

Call for Applications

Click here to apply

The Rome Foundation is excited to announce the launch of our Young Investigator Mentoring Program.

It gives researchers in the early stages of their careers–who do not have access to an experienced mentor– the opportunity to present proposed research studies to Rome Foundation Board members. They will review their proposals, identify pitfalls or opportunities, and give advice and guidance to the six selected applicants who will be allotted fifteen minutes each to present.

This will take place at a 3-hour meeting at DDW on Saturday, May 6th, 2017 from 3-6 p.m.

To apply, applicants must be researchers who:

  • Are interested in functional GI disorders and/or GI motility problems or function
  • Do not have sufficient mentoring input or support for their project
  • Can fund their own travel to Chicago, IL for DDW

The program has no geographic or age restrictions, and the deadline for applicants is March 15, 2017 with applicants being selected the first week of April.

The program is part of the Foundation’s commitment to the continuous development, legitimization and preservation of the field of FGIDs through science-based activities.
