Salary awards provide salary support to young investigators showing outstanding promise of developing an independent career in Crohn’s and colitis research. These awards help keep the best and brightest of new researchers focused on our area of research, supporting the new treatments of tomorrow and the search for cures.


Dr. Geoffrey Nguyen, current recipient of a Grant-in-Aid of Research as well as a New Investigator Salary Award, is a Clinical Scientist at the Zane Cohen Centre at Mount Sinai Hospital and an Associate Professor of Medicine at the University of Toronto. His research focuses on how to optimize the delivery of IBD healthcare and improving quality of care. Dr. Nguyen says, “the Crohn’s and Colitis Canada/CIHR/CAG New Investigator Salary Award has enabled me to devote my time to research instead of the typically heavy teaching or clinical work loads of physician scientists. With the support of Crohn’s and Colitis Canada’s Grant-in-Aid, my colleagues and I are conducting research that aims to improve continuity of care and the overall experience for teens with IBD who are transitioning from pediatric to adult IBD care. This is a particularly stressful and confusing time for our young patients as they strive to be more independent and self-reliant. We want to do all we can to ensure that they do not get lost in the system.”
