Scientific Workshop 6:
SciCom is launching a sixth Scientific Workshop, with the topic: "The Pathogenesis of Extraintestinal Manifestations: Implications for diagnosis and therapy".
If you wish to participate, please respond to our call by December 5 (deadline extension!).
General information - ECCO Scientific Workshops:
Our scientific workshops aim at unraveling unanswered questions in the field of IBD, producing authoritative reviews and thus contributing to the body of knowledge. These workshops are launched bi-annually by our Scientific Committee (two-year process per workshop).
These workshops address a single question, with working groups performing a systematic review to be published and setting the goals for research to answer the question.
Patient material is used to study a given question from different aspects in working groups of 5-8 members. Involvement is limited to participating members, who are presenting predefined aspects of a relevant question (~ 20 min each). A brainstorming discussion aims at outlining a resolution. The research would be funded by open application to grant-funding bodies, including ECCO for pilot work.
Interested or invited basic scientists welcome to participate but must be identified prior to the meeting. All participants follow a strict ethical code including the agreement not to use discussions and resolutions outside of ECCO and to follow pre-discussed rules on publication and authorship. No direct industry sponsoring will be accepted.
