ACG Institute Logo

The ACG Institute for Clinical Research & Education was founded in 1994 and is a center of innovation as well as a major source of funding for clinically oriented research and educational programming that benefits both clinicians and patients. The Institute and the ACG have granted more than $24.4 million to 667 investigators for research directly relating to the practice of clinical gastroenterology.

Looking ahead, the ACG Institute’s continued investment in career development awards and funding for GI fellows-in-training will foster clinical innovations in gastroenterology and hepatology that will improve patient care and strengthen the capabilities of practitioners. The College is proud of the achievements of its funded investigators and plans to invest more fully in their leadership and success.
