Natural Orifice Surgery Consortium for Assessment and Research NOSCAR®
Request for Research Proposals: Introduction
The first NOSCAR® Research Grants were awarded in 2006. Since that time, 63 grants have been presented. Recipients of NOSCAR are conducting research in both animal models and humans.
“NOSCAR is grateful to our corporate partners for supporting NOTES research and helping to advance this minimally invasive technique,” said Steven Schwaitzberg, MD, NOSCAR Research Subcommittee co-chair.
“These grant recipients are conducting research that is pointing us to the next phase in the evolution of the NOTES procedure, which is multicenter human studies,” said Michael L. Kochman, MD, FASGE.
