Cover motif 2024
Congratulations to Miriam Bittel, M.Sc. Molecular Sciences, Research Associate at the Clinic for Integrative Medicine and Naturopathy - Department of Science and Research at the Bamberg Social Foundation for winning this year's cover motif competition.
Award of the foundation Neurogastroenterologie 2023
The Neurogastroenterology foundation prize 2023 goes to our long-standing member Prof. Dr. Francois Cossais, Junior Professor at the Institute of Anatomy at Kiel University (CAU).
We congratulate Sophia Mayr, student and research assistant at the University of Veterinary Medicine Hannover Foundation, on winning the ESNM Young Investigator Award for her abstract "Mechanosensitive enteric neurons in the guinea pig stomach".
We are looking for the cover motif 2024
As of now, we are again looking forward to receiving submissions for the cover motif of the next annual conference invitation. The photo should give insight into the diverse spectrum of neurogastroenterology and motility.
The German Society for Neurogastroenterology and Motility e.V. (DGNM) aims to support the exchange and development of the scientific understanding in neurogastroenterology and gastrointestinal motility. The members of the DGNM include scientists and physicians from basic research and clinical practice, who contribute to psycho-neurogastroenterological research in national scientific working groups and international specialist conferences.
The DGNM awards travel grants to enable students and junior faculty to attend international meetings.
The main research focus of the society is neurogastroenterology, a field that deals with the innervation and regulation of the gastrointestinal tract and its functions. Dysfunctions of the enteric nervous system and the connection between microbiome, gut and brain (microbiome-gut-brain axis) can affect the gastrointestinal tract. Typical neurogastroenterological disease patterns are dysphagia, irritable stomach syndrome, irritable bowel syndrome or chronic abdominal pain. These clinical presentations are multifactorial and require interdisciplinary dignosis and treatment; therefore, psychosomatics also plays an important role in the DGNM.
