Intestinal Disorders Descriptors for DDW® 2015

Each summer, the ID section descriptors are reviewed to optimize scientific relevance and minimize topic overlap. The current list of abstract descriptors is as follows:

  • Celiac Disease: Basic
  • Celiac Disease: Clinical
  • Clinical Intestinal Disorders: Diarrhea, Malabsorption, Intestinal failure
  • Commensal Microbial Communities: Mechanisms of Synergy, Metabolic Regulation, and Host Defense
  • Diarrhea, Malabsorption, Intestinal failure: Microbes and Mechanisms
  • Epithelial Junctions, Barrier Function and Wound Repair
  • Genetics and Intestinal Disorders
  • GI Infections and Microbial Pathogenesis
  • Gut Microbiota and Metabolic Regulation
  • In Vivo and Organoid Models of Intestinal Disorders
  • Innate Immunity Intrinsic to the Epithelial Barrier
  • Intestinal Cell and Molecular Biology: Signal Transduction and Gene Regulation
  • Intestinal Epithelial Transport: Ions, Nutrients and Lipids
  • Intestinal Inflammation, Injury, Repair and Fibrosis
  • Intestinal Stem Cell Biology
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome: Clinical
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome: Pathophysiology
  • Ischemia and Hypoxia, Basic and Clinical Advances
  • Microbial Pathogenesis and Commensal Communities
  • Novel Diagnostics and Therapeutics in Intestinal Disease
  • Pharmacotherapy, Prebiotics, Probiotics in Intestinal disease
  • Radiation and Chemotherapy Induced Damage
