Hundreds of clinicians and researchers attend the Gut Microbiota for Health World Summit (GMFH) each year to learn about the latest advances in understanding the gut microbiome and its role in human health and disease. What better way to amplify your credentials, showcase your work and help advance the field than by submitting an abstract to the 2019 GMFH Summit?
The GMFH Scientific Committee is seeking abstracts on basic and clinical research related to the gut microbiome and its role in human health and disease for the 8th annual GMFH summit on March 23 and 24, 2019 in Miami. The abstract submission deadline is Dec. 7, 2018. Registration is open and early bird rates are available through Jan. 15, 2019.
Organized by the AGA and the European Society of Neurogastroenterology and Motility (ESNM), the GMFH World Summit is the preeminent meeting on gut microbiota for health care professionals, dietitians and researchers. The 2019 program will present the latest evidence on the interaction between diet, nutrition and the gut microbiome.
The committee is particularly interested in abstracts related to:
- Gastrointestinal and liver diseases.
- Clinical applications of the microbiome.
- Immune functions.
- Mechanisms of action.
- Diet and nutrition.
Funding opportunities from the AGA Research Foundation are also open for application. Researchers in North America are eligible to apply for AGA Research Scholar Awards. Learn more and apply by Dec. 14.
