About us

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.
