The CSIBD organizes an Annual Symposium and Workshop that focuses on an area of investigation relevant to IBD. This multi-day event features internationally renowned speakers, over half of whom travel from outside Boston to present their research to the CSIBD community.

The 33st Annual Center for the Study of Inflammatory Bowel Disease Workshop
November 2-3, 2023
The workshop will focus on four key areas: proteins and metabolites in immunity, host-microbiome interactions, T cell functional specification, and tissue organization and memory formation. Confirmed speakers include Giorgio Trinchieri, Aashik Manglik, Marcia Haigis, Vamsi Mootha, Nicholas Polizzi, Wendy Garrett, Curtis Huttenhower, Alexandra Zhernakova, Andrea Reboldi, Meng Wu, Vijay Kuchroo, Rob Rahimi, Carmen Gerlach, David Artis, Judith Agudo, Rob Manguso, Diane Mathis, Moshe Biton, Azucena Salas, Jeffrey Moffitt, Ruth Franklin, Christoph Thaiss, and Ananda Goldrath.
