Who we are

ESNM has a specific focus on the neural, endocrine, metabolic, immunological and microbiological regulation of gastrointestinal functions in health and in diseases. Our clinical focus includes functional bowel disorders (irritable bowel syndrome, functional dyspepsia, gastrooesophageal reflux disease, etc.), post-infectious bowel conditions, visceral pain syndromes (e.g. pancreatitis), and non-intestinal disorders with disturbances of intestinal functions.

The mission of ESNM is to expand knowledge and interest in the field, to educate the younger generation of physicians in basic and clinical aspects in the field, to promote scientific and educational events, to encourage basic and clinical research in the field  and to establish the standards for good clinical practice and patient care.
