Inflammatory Bowel Disease Committee

Inflammatory Bowel Disease Committee | ASCRS

The Inflammatory Bowel Disease Committee focuses on clinical practices and research.

The Surgical Research Network (SRN) of the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation

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. To join the SRN, please complete the application
