About The Rome Foundation
The mission of The Rome Foundation is to improve the lives of people with functional GI disorders. An independent organization, The Rome Foundation provides support for scientific research and the development of educational information to assist in the diagnosis and treatment of functional gastrointestinal disorders (FGIDs).
Over the last 17 years, The Rome Foundation has sought to legitimize and update our knowledge of the FGIDs. This has been accomplished by bringing together scientists and clinicians from around the world to classify and critically appraise the science of gastrointestinal function and dysfunction. This knowledge permits clinical scientists to make recommendations for diagnosis and treatment that can be applied in research and clinical practice.
The Rome Foundation is committed to the continuous development, legitimization and preservation of the field of FGIDs through science-based activities. We are inclusive and collaborative, patient-centered, innovative and open to new ideas.
