2016 GI Circadian Rhythm


Circadian rhythm in GI health and diseases, will cover the emerging role of circadian dysrhythmia in pathologies related to digestive system, with the world’s leading expert investigators on a broad range of basic and translational circadian research topics involving metabolism, gut inflammation, brain-gut pathways, and GI cancers. This symposium will contribute to educating researchers, post-docs and clinicians on this growing topic, and will provide opportunities for developing multi-center, multi-discipline collaborations between basic and translational scientists in the fields of circadian biology and GI/liver, alcohol and metabolic disorders.

About The Symposium

This symposium will provide scientists, post-doctoral fellows, fellows-in-training, clinicians, and clinician-scientists with a highly dynamic and interactive environment to discuss and learn about the impact that circadian rhythms may have on a variety of GI/liver and metabolic/nutrition diseases. Selected oral abstracts and posters will be featured and will serve as a forum for young investigators to present their research and interact with leading research scientists in a collaborative and mentoring fashion.

This symposium is the first symposium with a special focus on circadian and pathologies related to the gastrointestinal system.
