We are currently launching, together with leading IBD clinicians, a comprehensive IBD research studying multiple aspects of the disease, including risk factors, prediction of disease trajectory, and the effect of various interventions. As the first and significant step, however, we’d like to launch a phenotyping effort for IBD (and its related diseases: ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease) and globally characterize IBD patients. @Patrick_Ryan has kindly agreed to join and mentor us in this project. We would love for all of you who are interested in IBD and/or disease phenotyping to join us. Please let me know if you are interested!
