ASGE supports an expansion of federal investment in endoscopic research, particularly research pertaining to Barrett's esophagus, capsule endoscopy, colorectal cancer, controlled trials in endoscopic ultrasound, ERCP, endoscopic optical recognition techniques, new quality indicators, NOTES and novel endoscopic treatments for obesity. 

ASGE supports increased funding to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), specifically the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) and the National Institute for Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering. Research is also supported by the Agency for Health Research and Quality, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Department of Defense.
