Inflammatory Bowel Disease - From Bench to Bedside
The incidence of chronic inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis in children and young adults is amongst the highest in the world.
The major genetic factors contributing to IBD have begun to be defined. Research emphasis is now focussed on dissecting the importance of diet, the intestinal micro-organisms, and other environmental factors in the course of disease. Understanding the mechanisms involved in these gene-environmental interactions will be pivotal to move towards prevention and cure.
This lecture will take place on Wednesday 16 November at the Wellcome Lecture Theatre, QMRI from 17.30-18.45. Further details can be found here.
