How To Get Published and Be A Successful Investigator 

Hosted by The Diseases of the Esophagus Journal 

Join us for a live virtual panel as Judy Trieu interviews Vani Konda, Daniela Molena, and Prateek Sharma on publishing your research and studies in the Diseases of the Esophagus Journal.  

This will be a practical forum for early-career investigators covering such questions as how to identify research questions, secure resources, and developing your methodology and analysis. We will also be covering manuscript writing and what you can do if your manuscript is rejected. 

Attendees will be invited to join breakout sessions at the end for Surgeons and Gastroenterologists to discuss additional questions and thoughts in smaller groups. 

This presentation will appeal to trainees, fellows and early career gastroenterologists, surgeons and scientists focused on esophageal diseases.

While the timing of this panel will be most convenient for individuals in North and South America, all are welcome to join. Similar panels will be planned for other regions in future.
