Galapagos is excited to be sponsoring a series of insightful events led by internationally renowned IBD experts at UEG Week Virtual 2021,
taking place from 3–5 October 2021.

These events will bring together leading experts in IBD, including Professor Séverine Vermeire, Professor Subrata Ghosh, Professor Laurent Peyrin-Biroulet, Professor Stefan Schreiber, Dr Joana Torres and Professor Alessandro Armuzzi, to examine recent research and consider how it might impact IBD patient care. Through a range of practice-focussed discussions, we will explore how factors such as the use of patient-important treatment targets, advanced treatment options and increasingly personalised care all help drive a holistic approach to remission in IBD.

The Galapagos programme also includes a series of meet-the-expert sessions, where you can hear from leading gastroenterologists from across Europe on how to apply a holistic approach to remission in your practice.
