The CGIF 2024 Congress will take place April 8 to 10, 2024, at the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.
CGIF maintains a tradition established in 1951 to provide academic and industry scientists a biennial forum to present the latest advances in our understanding of gastrointestinal microbiology, (immuno)physiology, and nutritional sciences.
The topics presented at the congress include studies with livestock and poultry species for food production and biomedical research, as well as clinical and nutritional studies relevant to improving human health and well-being. Research that addresses the environmental and public health impacts from gastrointestinal microbiology (e.g., the ecology of antibiotic resistance, food safety, and waste management) is also welcome.
The 2024 congress will be held at the Beckman Institute, located on the U of I campus, and we are proud to have recruited an excellent group of plenary speakers. The abstract submissions will be used by the congress's Scientific Committee to select oral presentations for the five sessions, with time slots for poster presentations throughout the congress.
Please explore our website for more details, and we invite you to attend our next congress to be held at the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, April 8 to 10, 2024.
