The Genomic Basis of IBD in Ireland

Researchers at the Clinical Translational Research and Innovation Centre (C-TRIC) based on the Altnagelvin Hosptial Site are looking for people to take part in an important scientific research study aimed at unlocking the mystery of the genetic and lifestyle factors that contribute to IBD (Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis).  

This new study funded by Genomics Medicine Ireland and run in collaboration with C-TRIC and the Western Health and Social Care Trust aims to improve our understanding of the genomic and biological factors that contribute to IBD.  If you are interested and would like more information about the study, please contact Geraldine Horigan: 07753 138782 or Michelle Friel: 07549 680105 or email

This research study is not funded or organised by Crohn's & Colitis UK, and therefore we cannot take responsibility for your involvement in the research. It is a patient’s choice to take part.
