Clinical Research

It's All About Your Discovery

DDW 2024 advances the field from bench to bedside, showcasing the GI research that’s shaping the future of digestive disease care. Learn what your colleagues across the globe are working on, exchange ideas and spark new possibilities for your own work. This is the most comprehensive event in digestive health and where you’ll discover findings with the potential to revolutionize patient care and pave the way for new advancements in the field.

At DDW, it’s not a one-size-fits-all approach. A robust, self-driven program lets you take control of your curriculum, from unique session formats to opportunities for networking. Customize your DDW experience using DDW Tracks to filter sessions, posters and ePosters based on topical areas of interest. Choose how you want to be part of DDW. Attend in person in Washington, D.C. or join us online. 

I’m excited to share our research and what we’re doing with the greater audience at DDW. I’m also excited to learn about what others are studying and what others are researching.
