Make a Gift
The University of Chicago Medicine Inflammatory Bowel Disease Center has a legacy of over 85 years of leadership in the investigation of new treatments for inflammatory bowel disease. As part of this innovative research tradition, researchers at the IBD Center have:
- Developed surgeries to help patients avoid the need for an ileostomy when removing the colon
- Discovered the first gene for Crohn's disease, NOD2
- Defined the role of environmental and dietary factors in triggering "Western" disorders, including inflammatory bowel disease, colorectal cancer, complex immune disorders and metabolic diseases
- Demonstrated the relationship between inflammation and cancer risk in ulcerative colitis
How You Can Help
These discoveries were made possible through the contributions of patients, friends and family members who provided additional funds for advanced clinical and laboratory research. Please consider supporting the IBD Center's important mission.
