The 5th Meeting of the Federation of Neurogastroenterology and Motility – NeuroGASTRO 2021 offers again a mix of basic, translational and clinical science sessions.

Postgraduate Course

The Postgraduate Course will provide an update on the clinical aspects of Neurogastroenterology and Motility. During this half-day course renowned experts will provide practice-oriented comprehensive overviews, covering pathophysiology, diagnosis and treatment of GI motility and functional disorders.

Plenary Sessions

In addition, one or two top-ranked abstracts that fit in the theme of the session will be presented orally. The time allotted for oral presentations is 15 minutes, including questions.

Parallel Symposiums

There are three simultaneous, parallel symposiums. One of these has a basic science theme, another one a translational theme and the third is a clinical science session. Most parallel sessions last 90 minutes and comprise two invited lectures (30 minutes) and two selected abstract presentations (15 minutes each).

Poster Sessions

Accepted Posters will be exhibited during NeuroGastro 2021 and will be grouped into areas of research. The poster exhibition offers an effective forum for the exchange of information, and a platform to communicate ideas, research and programmes.
