Why? Gastrointestinal and liver diseases are common in children and nutrition is of foremost importance in healthy infants and children as well. However, there is too little research in this area. This is the reason why we wanted to set up a Danish research fund.
Purpose of the research fund The aim is to improve the diagnostic efforts, children's quality of life and disease treatment through research into children's gastrointestinal and liver diseases as well as nutrition. This will be done primarily by supporting younger clinical researchers as well as disseminating knowledge about the field.
Idea The initiative was created in connection with the European Society for Paediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition (ESPGHAN) Congress in Copenhagen 2022. We will establish the research fund within the auspices of the Danish Society for Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition (DaSPGHaN). The statutes of the fund will be transparent and subject to scrutiny by a certified accountant.
As a natural sequence of events the fund will be established in connection with DaSPGHaN's general assembly on September 26, 2022.
