IBD 2024 | Leuven 16 → 18 September

From September 16-18, 2024 the Leuven IBD group organizes an international symposium with the overarching theme : “Where innovation crosses boundaries”

This symposium builds further on its first edition held in 2017 “Where innovation meets expertise”. 

We have again made an attractive scientific program focusing on the longstanding multidisciplinary expertise of the Leuven IBD group that combines expertise with innovative concepts, study designs and scientific results.

The topics of discussion during this symposium  – amongst others – include imaging and scoring IBD, perianal Crohn’s disease, how to set up multidisciplinary clinics, positioning of diet and nutrition, measuring and improving quality of delivered care. We will involve many different stakeholders in the discussions including nurses, nutritionists and psychologists, surgeons, pathologists, rheumatologists and dermatologists and radiologists. We also look to the future with new medicines and surgical techniques and will discuss how the management of IBD in 2030 will look like.

We are proud to have once again attracted international top speakers with renowned expertise as you will see in the program. It gives us pleasure that our speakers and chairs reflect the fruitful international collaborations and friendships the Leuven IBD group has always enjoyed!
