Launch of NeuroGASTRO 2017 in San Francisco
The recent Federation of Neurogastroenterology and Motility Meeting (FNM) in San Francisco provided the springboard to launch and promote “NeuroGASTRO 2017” – the European Society of Neurogastroenterology and Motility’s (ESNM) European meeting. NeuroGASTRO 2017 will run from August 24th- 26th, 2017 and will be held at University College Cork (UCC) - home to the APC Microbiome Institute. Dr. Niall Hyland (Department of Pharmacology & Therapeutics and APC Microbiome Institute) and Dr. Gerard Clarke (Department of Psychiatry & Neurobehavioural Science) successfully bid to host NeuroGASTRO 2017 at UCC and look forward to welcoming attendees to one of the oldest institutes of higher learning in Ireland.
The view from the 33rd floor of 100 Pine Street, home of the Consulate General of Ireland in San Francisco, provided an inspiring backdrop for an evening of drinks and Irish food to celebrate Cork hosting NeuroGASTRO 2017 and we were delighted to welcome colleagues, friends and representatives from the ESNM, the American Neurogastroenterology and Motility Society (ANMS) and the Australasian NeuroGastroenterology and Motility Society (ANGMA). In particular, we would like to thank the Consul General - Philip Grant, Vice Consul - Colum Hatchell and Ms Jacqueline Keelan for their hospitality and Prof. Eamonn Quigley (Houston Methodist Hospital and APC Microbiome Institute) for providing a uniquely Irish and local perspective on the scientific and social charms of UCC and Cork. We are also particularly grateful to the Cork Convention Bureau, Failte Ireland – Business Tourism and to Lori Ennis from the ANMS for their generous support.
The first meeting of the NeuroGASTRO 2017 Scientific Committee took place at FNM and we look forward to the development of an exciting and comprehensive program for the meeting. Addressing basic, translational and clinical aspects of hot topics in neurogastroenterology, this stimulating content will be delivered across three days of plenary sessions, symposia and free presentations with further opportunity for lively debate during social events. Further information can be accessed at the meeting’s website, http://www.neurogastro2017.org/.
The ESNM, Irish Society of Gastroenterology – Neurogastroenterology and Motility Section and APC Microbiome Institute look forward to welcoming you to Cork city in 2017!
