About The Rome Foundation
The mission of The Rome Foundation is to improve the lives of people with functional GI disorders. As an independent not-for-profit 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 20 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 work has enabled the experts convened by the Foundation to make recommendations for diagnosis and treatment that can be applied in research and clinical practice. These recommendations are provided in the Foundation’s publications and reflected in the Rome diagnostic criteria.
