GAT NEWS & ACTIVITIES

Greetings from the Korean College of Helicobacter and Upper Gastrointestinal Research Association.

On behalf of the Korean College of Helicobacter and Upper Gastrointestinal Research, we would like to request your cooperation and contribution to organize the 29th Annual Meeting of the Korean College of Helicobacter and Upper Gastrointestinal Research & the 17th Korea-Japan Joint Symposium on Helicobacter Research.

Since its foundation in February 1997, our society has established itself as a central academic institution in the field of Helicopter and the Upper GI research, and has developed into an exemplary and excellent institution. This year, our institution is conducting “the 29th Annual Meeting of the Korean College of Helicobacter and Upper Gastrointestinal Research & The 17th Korea-Japan Joint Symposium on Helicobacter Research” (HUG 2021) from March 19th, 2021 to March 20th 2021.

As you know, we have been dealing with the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic that has changed our daily lives. Considering the current situation, the organizing committee decided to hold the HUG 2021 as a hybrid meeting (it will be partially conducted as a virtual meeting) and we will do our best to ensure a seamless connection with all participants.

The HUG 2021 Virtual Platform provides the lectures of world leading scholars an opportunity to be readily accessible for various numbers of people. Through submission of the abstracts, we offer the opportunity not only to communicate and share research results but also to have a chance to win the award for Best Abstract. Furthermore, lively discussion through Zoom is also one of the many benefits we proudly present.

It will be our great honor to have you share the opportunity to join HUG 2021 with your respected members.
