Digestive Disease Week (DDW) 2018 was held in Washington, D.C., June 2-5. DDW is a wide range of international gathering of physicians, researchers and academics in the fields of gastroenterology, hepatology, endoscopy and gastrointestinal surgery.
Three abstracts from Gastroenterology Department of our hospital were selected as the oral presentations by the AGA Institute Council. In addition, 15 submissions were selected as the poster presentations, which fully reflected the strength of clinical and basic research of GI department. Dr. Guoxin Zhang was invited to attend the meeting in the United States. The DDW afforded an opportunity to share our research findings with other professionals and to learn the latest progress in the field of gastroenterology. It is greatly beneficial to our clinic work and basic research in the future.
