Welcome Message

Dear esteemed members of KASID,

Greetings to all of you.
First and foremost, I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to all the members who have consistently shown tremendous interest and dedication to the progress of KASID. Over the past 20 years, our society has achieved remarkable growth under the mission of prioritizing research on intestinal diseases, providing clinical guidelines, and sharing accurate information to contribute to public health. This remarkable progress of our society has been made possible by the passion of our members and the unwavering dedication of past presidents and executive members who have actively participated in society activities. As we embark on the 11th term, we approach it with an initial mindset to prepare for the next 20 years, aiming to transform our society into a global organization that transcends Asia in the field of intestinal diseases. We would like to emphasize the following initiatives:

Firstly, we will enhance research vitality through creative research activities and active research support. By further strengthening the research funding and support system established during the 10th term, we aim to bolster the quality of academic and research projects, expand the research infrastructure for young investigators, and promote diverse and innovative interdisciplinary collaborative research among multiple institutions.

Secondly, we will strive to continuously enhance our society's journal and work towards its inclusion in SCIE. Our society's official journal, 'Intestinal Research,' which also serves as the official journal of AOCC, has demonstrated rapid development with high-level papers and international recognition. We will spare no effort to ensure its inclusion in SCIE, establishing it as a reputable international academic journal.

Thirdly, we will dedicate our efforts to foster young talents and expand the human resources necessary for the future development of our society. The future of our society relies on the active participation and interest of young members. To that end, we have implemented programs such as the Young Leaders Camp and JUMP to nurture young members and cultivate exceptional talents. We will review and optimize these talent development programs, laying a solid foundation for the future of our society.

Lastly, we will intensify communication with our members and endeavor to become a society that shares accurate and up-to-date information with both members and the general public. We will diversify programs to encourage active participation from members across various fields. Furthermore, we will provide our members and the general public with accurate medical information and guidelines on intestinal diseases, while continuously striving to ensure that healthcare policies reflect the needs of our members and the general public.

Now, as we commence the 11th term, all executive and committee members pledge their utmost dedication to the advancement of our society and to fulfill the expectations of our esteemed members. We sincerely request your continued interest and active participation.

Thank you.

Best regards,
Tae Il Kim, MD, PhD
President of the Korean Association for the Study of Intestinal Diseases
