A Message from the ANMS President Gianrico Farrugia, MD
Welcome. The American Neurogastroenterology and Motility Society is passionate about advancing our field to improve the lives of individuals with disorders affecting gastrointestinal neuromuscular function and the brain–gut axis. To do so, the ANMS council met to refine our strategic plan and accelerate its implementation. There was strong agreement that to be truly effective, the ANMS needs to focus on defined initiatives with clear objectives and metrics. As a result, six task forces have been formed that will now be responsible for execution of the ANMS strategic plan. This will ensure that we indeed advance our field and help our patients. The first task force is led by Dr. John Wiley and is accountable for setting up the ANMS Institute. This task force will create the structure of the Institute, reach out to interested parties, and run a capital campaign.
The Mission and Goals of the ANMS
The American Neurogastroenterology and Motility Society is an organization that was established in 1980 dedicated to the study of neurogastroenterology and gastrointestinal motility and functional GI disorders.
Mission of the ANMS
To be the multidisciplinary society leading the field of neurogastroenterology by fostering excellence in research, education, training, and patient care.
Neurogastroenterology encompasses the study of brain, gut, and their interactions with relevance to the understanding and management of GI motility and functional GI disorders.

ANMS is accepting applications for the 2018 Small Grants Program. The Research Program will provide 2 grants of $30,000 each. The program will fund research projects focused on any topic area relevant to neurogastroenterology and motility. It is anticipated that one award will be made to a clinical/translational investigator and one award will be made to a basic science investigator. Applicants must have a primary appointment at an academic institution. Applicants must also be a member of the ANMS at the time of application and also the mentor must be an ANMS member. The application deadline is November 3, 2017. Funds will be available to successful applicants in February 2018. Click here for more information and to submit your on-line application.
Applications will be evaluated by members of the Research Committee.
The American Neurogastroenterology and Motility Society (ANMS) Research Committee is launching a Mentoring Program in Neurogastroenterology and Motility to help young clinicians and scientists (MDs, PhDs, or DVMs) as they start their research career in the areas of neurogastroenterology and gastrointestinal motility. The areas of interest can be varied and the research may take the form of clinical investigation, basic science research, or translational science research. The objective of the program is to provide guidance to individuals at an early stage of their career who may enter the field of neurogastroenterology and gastrointestinal motility.
