Canadian Digestive Diseases Week™ (CDDW™) is the annual scientific conference of the Canadian Association of Gastroenterology (CAG) and the Canadian Association for the Study of the Liver (CASL). The core conference program offers both clinical and basic science sessions and our staff at Verdu Lab has made its mark for the 2017 sessions!

From our very intimidating gang we’d like to acknowledge:

  • Jasmine Dong for wining the CAG student award for her abstract and oral presentation on the role of serpin-producing bacteria in gluten sensitivity.
  • Heather Galipeau for her outstanding oral presentation about microbial proteases and innate immune responses in the small intestinal mucosa.
  • Justin McCarville for his presentation on the role of bacterial opportunistic pathogens in the pathogenesis of celiac disease.

We are very proud to support Farncombe Institute’s vision of knowledge translation as a service to inform the public of advances in our understanding of digestive diseases and to create awareness of these diseases in our society.
