Gut and Liver Inflammation - A Translational Science Masterclass

Tuesday, 01 April 2014 14:04

BSG 2014 will host Scientists in Gastroenterology's first Translational Science Masterclass, a full day symposium aimed at reconnecting UK clinicians and basic scientists in key areas of Gastroenterology and Hepatology research.

With huge recent advances in post-genomic science, gut and liver immunology, and the growing realisation of the importance of the microbiome to human health and disease, the first event will focus on these cross-cutting themes, with a strong Faculty of local, national and international speakers.

Where better to start our revolution than the city where the industrial revolution began, the atom was split and the first computer was created. We hope to see you there!

Join us on 19th June 2014 at BSG 2014 at the Manchester Central Convention Complex, UK

European Commission actively searches for external experts in hepatogastroenterology

Monday, 10 February 2014 14:46

Each year, the European Commission Directorate General for Research & Innovation, with the help of external experts, reviews many research proposals. Becoming an external expert has several advantages, such as gaining valuable insight into the Horizon 2020 programme and extensive network opportunities. Experts act in their personal, independent capacity and do not represent their institutions or organisations. Registering as an expert will not interfere with the capacity to apply for Horizon 2020 funding. Furthermore, compensation is offered for the evaluation work. More information can be found here.

Monday, 10 February 2014 11:51

The NIHR Evaluations, Trials and Studies programmes have funded independent research to add to the evidence base to help tackle the rise in alcohol misuse. Projects aim to produce high-quality research providing information of immediate value to healthcare decision- and policy-making. Further details of the programmes, including RCTs funded by the HTA programme, such as STeroids or Pentoxifyline for Alcoholic Hepatitis (STOPAH), can be found in NETS news.
