Speakers

C. Prakash Gyawali, MD
Professor of Medicine, Director of Neurogastroenterology and Motility, Program Director of Gastroenterology Fellowship Training @Washington University St. Louis
Dr. Prakash Gyawali is currently a Professor of Medicine, Director of Neurogastroenterology and Motility, and Program Director of Gastroenterology Fellowship Training at the Division of Gastroenterology, Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis, USA. Dr. Gyawali's academic interests include gastrointestinal motility, gastroesophageal reflux disease, and functional disorders. He directs gastrointestinal motility centers affiliated with Washington University, and is involved in motility testing using high resolution manometry, esophageal ambulatory esophageal pH and impedance monitoring, wireless pH monitoring and endoscopic functional lumen imaging probe (endo-FLIP). He is actively involved in clinical research involving neurogastroenterology and motility.
Shanthi Srinivasan, MD
Professor of Medicine and Director of the Division Director of Digestive Disease @Emory University
Dr. Shanthi Srinivasan is currently a Professor of Medicine and the Director of the Division Director of Digestive Disease at Emory University. Her research interest focuses on the enteric nervous system and pathophysiological mechanisms underlying gastrointestinal motility disorders. She also studies the role of neurotrophic factors on regulating hepatic steatosis. She is funded through the NIH and the VA and was recently awarded the VA Senior Clinician Investigator Scientist Award. She has more than 75 manuscripts published, some of which are in top journal like Gastroenterology, the Journal of Clinical Investigation and the FASEB journal. She is a councilor for the American Neurogastroenterology and Motility society. She enjoys mentoring students and junior faculty.
David Levinthal, MD, PhD
Assistant Professor and Director of the Neurogastroenterology and Motility Center @University of Pittsburgh Medical Center
Dr. Levinthal is as Assistant Professor in the Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine and serves as the Director of the Neurogastroenterology and Motility Center at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. He also Co-Directs the Program for Gut-Brain Health, an integrative behavioral-gastroenterology clinic for patients with functional GI and motility disorders. He leads an active research program spanning clinical, translational, and basic science approaches aimed at understanding the neural basis of mind-body interactions and their role in determining states of gastrointestinal health and disease.
