Kenneth Rainin Foundation
2024 Innovations Symposium
July 15-16, 2024 | Palace Hotel, San Francisco


When innovative thinkers come together, novel ideas gain traction.

The Kenneth Rainin Foundation’s annual Innovations Symposium brings together scientific minds from around the world to promote cutting-edge thinking about Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD).

Who should attend?

Researchers and clinicians from academia, government, and industry and trainees interested in IBD research.

What makes this conference different?

By bringing together noted experts with diverse perspectives, this unique Symposium has a powerful and lasting impact on both participants and the research in which we are all invested. We keep this event small so you can connect with others, exchange ideas, and plan future collaborations.

“This was a fantastic event, filled with excellent talks and vibrant discussions at the cutting edge of IBD research.”– Jamie Spangler, PhD, Johns Hopkins
