Developing Our Research
Our greatest challenges in developing research include the global tightening of pharmaceutical R&D, since the global financial crisis, and the lack of Government funding for large scale projects. To meet these challenges, we have implemented a strategic and diversified research portfolio, including developing translational research projects and pilot/feasibility studies to collect data for larger clinical trials.
We encourage investigators to bring research concepts forward through various avenues and opportunities offered by the AGITG.
Our proven structured processes and teams of experts can provide advice that will make bringing your concept to life easier than you think.
The AGITG has a rich history of conducting practice changing clinical trials. Along with smaller scale trials we have the necessary evidence to support funding submissions and to undertake cutting edge translational research.
Our track record in publishing clinical trial research results and scientific outputs can be viewed here.
Research projects can be:
- Developed and led by local AGITG Investigators and Trial Management Committees
- Collaborations with local or international partners
- Developed and conducted externally and submitted for AGITG endorsement
- Submitted to the AGITG in various stages of development.
Current Forums for reviewing research include:
- New Concepts Symposium, presenting new concepts for feedback at the Annual Scientific Meeting
- AGITG-APC Pancreatic Cancer Research Workshop
- AGITG Innovation Fund, providing an annual grant of up to $200,000
- Expert Upper & Lower GI Working Parties
- Scientific Advisory Committee, assisting Working Parties in need of additional input
- Consumer Advisory Panel, advising on general research directions and priorities, from the consumer’s perspective.
