 What we’re about…

The Australasian Neurogastroenterology and Motility Association Inc – ANGMA – is an organisation for scientists and clinicians with a professional interest in the sub-speciality of gastroenterology that has recently become known as “neurogastroenterology”.  ANGMA members study a wide range of molecules, cells, tissues and mechanisms that influence the sensory, motor, secretory, vascular and immune functions of the gut.  ANGMA aims to facilitate, educate, represent and support scientific research and treatment of disturbances of neural function and motility of the gastrointestinal tract, in the broadest, evidence-based context.
