Welcome to ENS Meeting 2022

Welcome letter

Dear friends and colleagues,

It is my honor and great pleasure to invite you to the 6th International Symposium on “DEVELOPMENT OF THE ENS: THE FIRST 1000 DAYS” that will be held in Ferrara, from 24th to 27th April, 2022.

Ferrara is a beautiful city in the northeast of Italy, still combining the flavor of the past harmoniously  blended with the lively present. Notably, from 1995 on, UNESCO has included the historical centre of Ferrara in the list of World Cultural Heritage as a wonderful example of a town planned in the Renaissance and still keeping its historical centre intact.

You will be exposed to a vibrant and inspiring scientific atmosphere generated by a number of exciting topics on the ENS, such as its developmental mechanisms, genetics, stem cells, physiology and imaging, related abnormalities with severe conditions affecting gut physiology (also referred to as enteric neuropathies), role of glial cells and much more.
