Ground-breaking Gut papers over the last 60 years – Prof Robin Spiller

A previous Editor of Gut, Prof Spiller will give a historical perspective describing the first issues and pick out a selection of papers which caught his attention over the subsequent 60 years. Many papers have been  “ground breaking”, leading to significant developments in the field. This talk will feature some of the papers that have helped move the gastroenterology profession forwards.

How to get published in Gut –  tips for success – Prof Emad el-Omar

Prof el-Omar is the current Editor of Gut. His talk addresses the question of why publish, and is “publish or perish” a valid notion? His talk also looks at how to maximise the quality of your research, strategies for getting published and finally, how to handle rejection.

Future ways of sharing ideas and data – Prof Julia Mayerle

Prof Julia Mayerle’s talk will look at Gut’s major achievements in scientific publishing in the last 60 years,how to maintain quality, develop best practice standards and how do we imagine scientific publishing in the future – doomed to extinction?? She will also examine the role of  scientific publishing during a pandemic.


Prof Robin Spiller: Professor of Gastroenterology

Past Editor of Gut (2003-2009) and member of the Board of the Rome Foundation (2000-2015), he twice edited the British Society of Gastroenterology ( BSG )Guidelines for the management of IBS. His main research interest is the pathophysiology of irritable bowel syndrome(IBS), particularly the role of infection, inflammation, diet and alterations in the microbiome. He also has a long-standing collaboration with the Sir Peter Mansfield Imaging Centre pioneering the use of MRI to image the processes of digestion with a particular focus on mechanisms in functional bowel diseases and food intolerance.  Author/co-author of more than 408 widely cited scientific reviews and original publications. Current interests include the mode of action of ondansetron in treating  IBS with diarrhoea, using MRI to predict response to treatment of IBS with constipation and the effect of fibre on intestinal physiology in IBS.

Prof Julia Mayerle: Professor of Gastroenterology in Munich & UEG research committee member

Prof Meyerle mostly sees patients with pancreatic disorders ranging from pancreatitis to cancer and as a researcher was trained to participate in basic science projects as well as clinical projects ranging from randomized clinical trials to interventional endoscopy. During her trainingshe  spent time in laboratories focusing on pancreatic cancer (at Berne and UCL Irvine), cell biology (UCLA), and interventional endoscopy (Lister fellow, Glasgow).. The benefits of serving as a department chair at the University of Munich, whose internationally top ranked medical school, includes the opportunity to transfer experimental research results directly into multicentre clinical trials (e.g. the META-PAC trial or MagPEP Trial NCT00142233). The principal focus of her grants involve the immunological response in pancreatitis and the role of early detection and treatment resistance in pancreatic cancer.
