  • Distinguished Scientist Award for Women in Neurogastroenterology
  • Distinguished lectures from giants in the field of Neurogastroenterology & Motility
  • State-of-the-art lectures on hot topics in Neurogastroenterology & Motility
  • Oral and Poster scientific presentations from top ranked abstracts on cutting-edge research

Women in Neurogastroenterology & Motility Session

The goal of the session is to create a network of women pursuing a career in Neurogastroenterology and Motility (NGM) and develop programs to overcome systemic barriers, capture new opportunities and grow leadership skills. This year, we are focusing on Career Development. Dr. Fasiha Kanwal will discuss her professional journey and lessons learned in research, clinical work and leadership positions. This talk will be followed with a panel discussion with women investigators and clinicians in NGM.

Hands-On Neurogastroenterology & Motility Procedures & Case Discussions

Adult • Pediatric •  light refreshments
An interactive, hands-on session with experts who will demonstrate and interpret difficult cases, recording annotations, standard protocols, and equipment functionality. Vendors will display anorectal and esophageal manometry and pH impedance. Each vendor will pose 3 to 5 equipment-related questions. A raffle will be held and a prize will be awarded to the entry with the highest number of correct answers.

limited number of Travel Awards (Apply by May 26, 2023 to be considered) are available for registrants that qualify. Eligibility is noted on the registration form. (A new window will open for the Travel Award application on the Registration Form).
Travel Award for Clinical Course Eligibility: trainees, graduate students, post-docs or junior faculty up to 3 years after last degree or completion of training (e.g. Graduation from GI fellowship)- made the time frame a little longer (from 2 to 3 yrs post training).
Travel Award for Scientific Meeting Eligibility: trainees, graduate students and post-docs who submit an abstract to the meeting.

Course Overview:

This course is intended to increase participants’ knowledge of how to provide excellent clinical care and apply innovative approaches in the clinical management of motility and neurogastroenterology disorders. This meeting will provide attendees with an enhanced competency of the underlying mechanisms that govern common gastrointestinal motility disorders and disorders of gut-brain interaction and will provide a framework for developing a multidisciplinary plan for optimal diagnosis and treatment.  Discussions will encompass the relevant pathophysiology of these disorders as well as new findings from cutting-edge research in order to clarify matters of ongoing debate in the motility community and to improve knowledge of how application of emergent clinical innovations may influence patient outcomes. Through case-based presentations as well as a review of consensus opinions and available national/ANMS practice guidelines, attendees will gain greater confidence in areas including GERD, globus, gastroparesis, irritable bowel syndrome, dietary therapies, behavioral health, and innovative diagnostics and therapeutics.

Course Target Audience:

This program is intended for gastroenterologists in academic and clinical practice, gastroenterology fellows, nurses and nurse practitioners, physician assistants, dieticians, psychologists, technicians and medical assistants involved in adult and pediatric gastrointestinal motility testing, research, patient care, drug/device development, and other relevant stakeholders in the field of neurogastroenterology and motility.

Scientific Program Overview:

The scientific meeting will address many cutting-edge research areas which range from basic aspects of neurogastroenterology, translational and clinical aspects of gastrointestinal motility and brain-gut disorders. Topics will include the mechanisms of visceral pain, genetic and epigenetic approaches, role of the gut microbiota, food sensitivities and intolerances, patient reported outcomes and biomedical informatics. Disease areas that will be discussed include including esophageal disorders, functional dyspepsia, gastroparesis, irritable bowel syndrome, chronic constipation, and fecal incontinence.  In addition, participants will learn more about current and novel therapeutic approaches for these conditions.

Scientific Meeting Goals:

This meeting provides a forum for research scientists and clinicians to meet in a multi-disciplinary, interactive and supportive collaborative manner so as to generate new ideas and research applications to move the field of Neurogastroenterology & Motility forward. Invited speakers will present state-of-the-art research that focuses on disease mechanisms, diagnosis, and treatment of pediatric and adult disorders involving abnormalities in gastrointestinal function, sensation, psychosocial aspects, and brain-gut interactions
The conference is designed to provide a forum for the presentation, discussion and debate of translational and clinical research in the area of Neurogastroenterology & Motility, and brain-gut disorders so that physicians and health care professionals diagnosing and managing patients will be able to apply the latest evidence-based approaches to optimize effective patient outcomes.

Scientific Meeting Target Audience:

This meeting is intended for scientists, clinician scientists, gastroenterologists, but also psychiatrists and other clinicians; physicians in training such as gastroenterology fellows, biochemists, molecular and cell biologists, physiologists, neurophysiologists, immunologists, pharmacologists, and behavioral psychologists, doctoral level researchers, and nurses involved in adult and pediatric GI and motility testing and research

We hope you will consider attending the meeting and look forward to seeing you in Austin and sharing in this exciting meeting.
