... Irnya Pinchuk, PhD, who plans on becoming an independent NIH-supported researcher dedicated to advancing our current understanding of human mucosal gastrointestinal immune responses.

 … Irnya Pinchuk, PhD, from the University of Texas Medical Branch, who received a Research Scholar Award in 2009.

“It is a great honor for me to be a recipient of an AGA Research Scholar Award. My training gave me the skills necessary to pursue a career as an independent research scientist focusing on the investigation of oral tolerance, mucosal inflammation and immunity, and how those processes are affected during colorectal cancer (CRC), a disease which affects thousands of people in the U.S. and worldwide. As a junior faculty member, in order to become an independent and established researcher pursuing my scientific goals, it was imperative for me to secure funding from extramural sources, which has lately become increasingly difficult due to the worldwide economical crisis.”

“The AGA Research Scholar Award has given me the real opportunity to take another step toward the achievement of my scientific goals and to become an independent NIH-supported researcher, which will advance our current understanding of human mucosal gastrointestinal immune responses and will help to develop a new treatment for CRC.”
