SSN of Crohn's and Colitis Foundation | ASCRS


The Surgical Research Network (SRN) of the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation was created last year in partnership with the Research Foundation of ASCRS to enable selection and completion of collaborative Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) research projects.

The initial meeting was held last year at the 2017 ASCRS Annual Meeting, subsequently followed by additional meetings throughout the year to organize, select and fine tune research proposals. Two projects were funded and are awaiting IRB approval. The SRN is in a position to fund additional projects by year end.

We welcome all surgeons interested in IBD to participate. Our next SRN meeting will be held during the ASCRS Annual Scientific Meeting in Nashville at the Music City Convention Center, Room 209C, on Monday, May 21, 2018 from 6:00 am - 8:00 am. We hope to see you all there.
