IFFGD is a leader in the fight for more research to improve diagnostic and treatment options for gastrointestinal (GI) disorders. With donations from people like you, we directly fund grants and recognition awards to basic and clinical scientists working in the field.

With your input, we make the needs and concerns of people with functional GI and motility disorders known to the physicians, nurses, therapists, and researchers who work with patients and research these diseases. We have also fostered scientific exchange among leading researchers and clinicians through our International Symposium on Functional GI Disorders, and we collaborate on projects to evaluate the prevalence of these disorders and to determine the needs of those affected.
