ASCRS Announces Premier Sponsorship from Takeda


Takeda, a global biopharmaceutical leader headquartered in Japan with a global hub in Cambridge, Massachusetts, has joined The American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons (ASCRS) as one of its inaugural Premier Sponsors, a program that represents the highest-level opportunity for companies to differentiate themselves and support their strategic interest to ASCRS members and audiences. Premier Sponsors receive year-round recognition and premium positioning as part of the exclusive sponsorship.

“Through the newly launched Premier Sponsors program, ASCRS is reaching new heights in collaboration with our industry partners. We’re thrilled to have Takeda as a charter member and look forward to the next several years of exciting work,” said Conor Delaney, MD, PhD, ASCRS President.

ASCRS Executive Director David Westman, CPA, CAE stated, “ASCRS is thrilled to collaborate with Takeda as we launch our Premier Sponsor program. Our Premier Sponsors work with our Society and membership to strategically move the colon and rectal surgical specialty forward. We look forward to many successful years together.”

“Takeda is excited to support ASCRS and its members in their important work of advancing the understanding, prevention and treatment of colon and rectal disorders,” said Vijay Yajnik, MD, PhD, vice president, head of U.S. Medical for Gastroenterology at Takeda. “Patient care is best enhanced when we work together to address the most complex and significant unmet needs with solutions extending beyond medicine alone.”

Takeda’s work in gastroenterology focuses on GI inflammation, short bowel syndrome, liver disease and motility disorders.

“For more than 30 years, Takeda and our collaborative partners have worked to improve the lives of people with gastrointestinal diseases,” said Gamze Yüceland, senior vice president, Gastroenterology Business Unit at Takeda. “Through partnerships like this, we can deepen connections among the community and work together to ensure patients living with colon and rectal disorders can achieve their best possible quality of life.”
