XVIIth LBBB: an extraordinary meeting in extraordinary times
Little Brain Big Brain is a biannual meeting organized and attended by young investigators. Since its inception in 1989, this meeting has brought together promising junior researchers in neurogastroenterology. The XVIIth meeting featured the latest basic, clinical and industry research in the field in a special post-pandemic edition. Little Brain Big Brain (LBBB) is a satellite meeting that usually precedes the Federation of Neurogastroenterology and Motility (FNM) congress. The format is simple: choose an isolated location, ask 30 talented young scientists to present their unpublished work and allow unlimited time for discussion.
Due to the Corona pandemic, the FNM conference also had to be postponed and so the organising team decided to hold the XVII LBBB meeting as an extraordinary stand-alone meeting in Heiligkreuztal, Germany. LBBB was now very pleased about the publication of its article on this extraordinary meeting in Nature Reviews Gastroenterology & Hepatology.
