Ingestive Classics

INGESTIVE CLASSICS | MEETING PROGRAMS | NEWSLETTERS | GRANTS | JOURNALS


A series of seminal papers in our field, selected and introduced by SSIB members and available to all.


The primary purpose is to provide students, postdocs and colleagues with papers that various SSIB members consider to be critical building blocks of our field. The “classics” provide important historical context, both on the concepts upon which their work and hypotheses were based and on the results and standards of interpretation that the authors considered critical. The commentaries provide perspectives linking the classics to current work and ongoing issues.
