An appeal from Michael Camilleri, MD, DSc, AGAF


This holiday season is a good time to reflect on our many blessings and thank those who have helped make our lives and careers worthwhile, successful, and prosperous. What better way than to pass on something to those who will ensure that gastroenterology will advance in decades to come?

Progress in this lifesaving work is made possible by the generosity of many supporters, like you, who understand the devastating physical, emotional, and financial costs of digestive diseases. We simply cannot allow a slowdown in the pace of GI research, and we cannot afford to lose talent when research offers so much promise for the future.

You can make a difference to ensure the progress continues.

The AGA Research Foundation funds promising young investigators who might not receive funding otherwise at crucial times in their early careers. The research of these talented individuals, while important to the field, if left unfunded, could end prematurely. That’s something the field can’t afford, and that’s why I’ve supported the AGA Research Foundation over the years through my donations.

We must maintain a robust pipeline of research that will help safeguard the success of clinical medicine. I urge you to support the future of GI with a generous donation to the AGA Research Foundation. Your investment of $100, $250, $500, $1,000, or any amount you can give today will make a difference.

Help close the gap in research funding and make a difference. Make your tax-deductible donation online at

Thank you in advance for support and best wishes for a happy, healthy holiday season and prosperous New Year.
