“I attended my first AGITG Annual Scientific Meeting as an advanced trainee newly starting a PhD. It was a great educational meeting that had instructive symposia with an interesting and approachable local and international faculty. Those features have been present at each AGITG ASM that I have subsequently attended, and I have found the ASM to be an invaluable forum for presentation of research, less formal discussion of research themes and ideas, and learning about the challenges involved in clinical trial design. The AGITG ASM environment supports collaboration and networking, and I would highly recommend the meeting to all trainees, researchers, investigators and clinicians who have an interest in gastro-intestinal cancers.”
