Scientific Programme

The biennial meeting NeuroGASTRO 2021 is a well-established European event. ESNM is proud to bring together leading experts and emerging young investigators actively involved in neurogastroenterology, digestive motility and functional gastrointestinal diseases from Europe and from all around the world to discuss cutting-edge research. The congress presents the latest in science and education in various formats to suit the needs of all participants, including challenging state-of-the-art lectures.

Main topics of NeuroGASTRO 2021:

  • Mechanisms underlying normal and disordered gastrointestinal function
  • Pain mechanisms and visceral hypersensitivity
  • Role of the microbiome in health and disease
  • Dietary interventions including probiotics, prebiotics and symbiotics
  • Mechanisms and diagnostic techniques in food intolerance
  • Pathophysiological and clinical aspects of functional esophagogastro-intestinal disorders
  • Technologies for the assessment of esophagogastro-intestinal motility and perception
  • Current and future therapies for disordered gut function and functional gastrointestinal disorders
