Dear Colleague,

The 2009 Advances in IBD conference was an unquestionable success! Overall, the consensus was that this meeting has become a “can’t miss” update for those who study and manage patients with inflammatory bowel diseases. 

More than 1,100 gastroenterologists, pediatric specialists, clinical researchers, nurses, and other healthcare professionals with an interest in the treatment of patients with IBD participated in the scientific agenda.  49 international expert specialists offered more than 80 education presentations, and 174 abstracts were accepted for oral or poster presentation.

Be sure to note the abstract award winners listed on the Accepted Abstracts and Award Winners page of this website.  Congratulations to all!
