Vancouver Gastrointestinal Disease Research Group

The Vancouver Gastrointestinal Disease Research Group is part of the University of British Columbia’s Department of Pediatrics at British Columbia’s Children’s Hospital. Our group consists of basic and clinical life scientists involved in bench to bedside research of pediatric inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).

The Vancouver Gastrointestinal Disease Research Group integrates the scientific disciplines of immunology, microbiology, genetics, nutrition and intestinal physiology to broaden our understanding and develop cures for IBD. This program endeavours to capitalize on translational research to develop novel therapies to combat pediatric IBD.
