The European Medical Journal welcomes you to their annual publication of EMJ Gastroenterology, complete with its review of the 25th United European Gastroenterology (UEG) Week. The prestigious event took place in the Catalan capital of Barcelona, Spain, in the midst of a supercharged political atmosphere. As political division threatened to create a schism within the country, the scientific community came together from around the world to celebrate 25 years of gastroenterological unity and collaboration, creating an unforgettable congress. The intense passion for science and teamwork surrounding this event is captured brilliantly in EMJ Gastroenterology 6.1’s Congress Review section; from cutting-edge research, award presentations, abstract summaries, and more, UEG Week 2017 is presented in all its glory.
