Journal of Gastroenterology and Hepatology Foundation
Who we are
We foster research, education and training in gastroenterology and hepatology.
Ownership of the Journal of Gastroenterology and Hepatology (JGH) is the dual responsibility of the publisher (Wiley-Blackwell Publishing Asia) and the JGH Foundation, which makes it different in this respect from national and specialty journals.
A grant of up to USD10,000 for a research program in gastroenterology or hepatology. This grant is to assist in research and education conducted within the Asia Pacific region. It is available for specific projects only that will benefit from “seed funding” to progress.
Professor Kunio Okuda was one of the pioneers of hepatology and a great supporter of gastroenterology and the study of liver disease in the Asia Pacific region.
Professors Marshall and Warren received the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 2005 for their discovery of the principal causal agent of peptic ulcer disease and of a major aetiological factor in gastric cancer - the bacterium Helicobacter Pylori.
The purpose of the JGHF Emerging Leader Lectures is to recognise young scientists and clinical scientists within the region and encourage them as the ‘rising stars’ of the future.
