Barbara Jung, MD, AGAF, is a professor and chair of medicine at the University of Washington in Seattle. As a practicing gastroenterologist and physician-scientist, her expertise in gastrointestinal disease is extensive, and her research interests range from basic to clinical science. She completed her medical degree with thesis at the Ludwig-Maximilians University in Munich, Germany. She then moved to the U. S. and completed post-doctoral studies in colon cancer at the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center in San Diego, California under the mentorship of Dr. Michael McClelland. She completed both her internal medicine residency and gastroenterology fellowship at the University of California in San Diego in 2004 under the mentorship of Dr. John Carethers.

Andrew T. Chan, MD, MPH, AGAF received his ScB from Brown University, medical degree from Harvard Medical School, and master of public health from the Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health (HSPH). He did his internal medicine residency and chief residency, followed by gastroenterology fellowship at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), where he remains on faculty. He is professor of medicine at HMS, professor of immunology and infectious diseases at HSPH, chief of the clinical and translational epidemiology unit at MGH and the director of epidemiology at the MGH Cancer Center. He is the former program director of the MGH GI Fellowship Program. Dr. Chan is a gastroenterologist and a leading investigator in cancer prevention, supported as an Outstanding Investigator of the National Cancer Institute, Team Leader for the Stand Up to Cancer Gastric Cancer Interception Team, and by grants from the National Institute for Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases and the National Institute on Aging.

Michael Weinstein, MD, AGAF, began his career in private practice gastroenterology in 1985. He led the development of one the first ambulatory endoscopy centers to receive Medicare certification in 1986. His interest in the early addition of technology into medical practice includes adoption of video endoscopy in 1989, development of endowriter software with cMore (ProVation) and gMed, and as a former AMA CPT Advisory Panel representative, aided Given Imaging, Medtronics and Ethicon in requesting new CPT codes for technology innovations. In 2009, he spearheaded the merger of seven practices to form Capital Digestive Care and is now president and CEO of a practice of 69 physicians in the Washington, D.C., and suburban Mid-Atlantic region. He has a special interest in independent physician advocacy and is the immediate past president of the Digestive Health Physician Association and the clinical counselor on the AGA Governing Board.

Dr. Camilleri participates in educational and mentorship activities at Mayo Clinic and has mentored more than 80 national and international postdoctoral fellows and scientists. He maintains an active clinical practice in gastroenterology at Mayo Clinic, specializing in gastrointestinal motility disorders, gastroparesis and functional GI disorders.

He has received numerous awards and honors, including the 2012 Ismar Boas Medal from the German Society of Digestive and Metabolic Disease, the 2012 American Gastroenterological Association (AGA) Distinguished Mentor Award, the Janssen Research Award, the AGA Joseph B. Kirsner Award, the AGA Julius Friedenwald Medal in 2021, as well as honorary doctorates from the University of Antwerp (Belgium) and the University of Malta, and he was elected to the membership of the prestigious Association of American Physicians. Dr. Camilleri participates in educational and mentorship activities at Mayo Clinic and has mentored more than 80 national and international postdoctoral fellows and scientists. He maintains an active clinical practice in gastroenterology at Mayo Clinic, specializing in gastrointestinal motility disorders, gastroparesis, and functional GI disorders.
