Research Foundation Committees
The committees support and further the mission of the Research Foundation by implementing the strategic goals and objectives. The Research Committtee is responsible for reviewing the scientific merit of grant applications for the Research Foundation. The Young Researchers Committee focuses on the selection of a surgeon who has met the criteria for the Mentor Award, to develop the Research Forum at the ASCRS Annual Meeting which highlights developing areas of research that have clinical relevance for the care of patients with colorectal diseases, and to choose a winner of the best “Works in Progress” at the Research Forum. Finally, the Fundraising Assistance Committee is a group of surgeons and grateful patients, dedicated to the creation of novel funding resources to benefit the ASCRS Research Foundation.
