We spoke with Gianluca Ianiro, a gastroenterologist at Policlinico Universitario A. Gemelli in Rome, and a member of the UEG Young Talent Group (YTG) and UEG Research Committee
Together with the Research Committee and the YTG, Gianluca developed a new UEG grant, the UEG Research Fellowship. In 2019, UEG will award a grant of € 50,000 to a researcher so that they can spend 12 months working with a renowned European principal investigator (PI).
The Research Fellowship is suitable for clinical or basic researchers from Europe or the Mediterranean area. Those who are in training, have completed their training or PhD within the past 3 years or already have significant research experience are eligible to apply. The Research Fellowship is highly recommended for young researchers who want the opportunity to develop their ideas in a new working environment.
