A Message From the Director

We welcome you to the Jill Roberts Institute for Research in Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD). The mission of the Institute is to establish a multidisciplinary center of excellence that will accelerate new cutting edge scientific discoveries at both the basic and translational level, which collectively will advance innovative preventative and therapeutic approaches for IBD and other related inflammatory diseases. Our goal is to propel a paradigm shift in how we approach the research, treatment, prevention and cure of chronic inflammatory diseases by establishing interactive and successful collaborations between basic researchers, clinicians, pathologists, surgeons and bioinformaticians.
