The goal of the Gastrointestinal and Liver Physiology (GI/Liver) Section of the American Physiological Society is to promote and enhance excellence in research and training in gastrointestinal and liver physiology in order to advance and integrate our understanding of these systems from the molecular to the organ level. To achieve this, the GI/Liver Section will:
- Provide a forum for dissemination of novel discoveries in gastrointestinal and liver biology through programming of scientific meetings.
- Enhance interaction among gastrointestinal and liver biologists.
- Foster interdisciplinary and integrative approaches among gastrointestinal and liver physiologists and other scientific disciplines at the Experimental Biology meeting.
- Recognize excellence in gastrointestinal and liver physiology from the trainee through senior investigator levels.
