EHMSG 2022

September 8 - 10, 2022

Glasgow, United Kingdom



Dear Colleagues,

It has been 27 years since our group held its annual meeting in the UK, so it is my great pleasure, on behalf of the European Helicobacter and Microbiota Study Group (EHMSG), to invite you to Glasgow for the 2022 Conference in September 8th – 10th.

Glasgow is Scotland’s largest city and is renowned for its culture, style and the friendliness of its people. Glasgow offers a blend of internationally acclaimed museums and galleries, stunning architecture, vibrant nightlife, fantastic shopping and a diverse selection of restaurants and bars.

Vibrant and energetic, Glasgow enjoys a yearround buzz with an arts scene that regularly produces cutting-edge productions and attracts high profile exhibitions that led to the city being crowned European City of Culture in 1990.

Glasgow is also notable for its great scientists. It was a Glaswegian Charles Macintosh who patented the invention for
waterproof cloth in 1823, with the first Mackintosh coats made in the family textile factory, Charles Macintosh and Co. of
Glasgow. Hopefully you won’t need yours in September!


Other great Glaswegians include Joseph Lister, pioneer of antiseptic surgery and James Watt, the great engineer that the “Watt” was named after, who started the industrial revolution, highlighting that Glasgow knows how to innovate.

The EHMSG 2022 meeting promises to be scientifically inspiring, providing the latest developments from the Helicobacter and Microbiota field.

I look forward to seeing you in Glasgow in September!

Ceud Mìle Fàilte
