DDF 2015 Highlights

Friday, 01 May 2015 09:04

Shaheen Hamdy – Professor of Neurogastroenterolgy

"There are few opportunities in Gastroenterology where so many societies interested in GI are brought together, and DDF is one of these. Most exciting for me as chair of the Neurogastroenterology committee, is to see the how groups such as colorectal surgeons, IBD specialists and those interested in food sciences are going to interact during these 4 days to talk about their experience of functional GI disorders. And with world leaders in the field, included Professor Paul Moayyedi from MacMaster University, Canada, and Professor Adil Bharucha from the Mayo Clinic, Rochester, USA, providing key note lectures in the field and a superb selection of free papers, posters and seminars from the stomach to the pelvis, this is a meeting that just cannot be missed!"

Colin Rees – Professor of GI Endoscopy

"The UK has a long track record in collaboration for the delivery of Gastrointestinal services. The DDF brings together the main UK GI organisations for a combined educational meeting and will be held from June 22-25th this year. The meeting will provide key updates in the care of patients with GI diseases along with cutting edge research from world leading researchers.
I am particularly looking forward to hearing Brian Saunders Endoscopy Foundation Lecture on Tuesday and the endoscopy research update with a dragons den on Thursday morning. The DDF a must attend event for anyone who treats patients with GI conditions".
