Join Our Study

Our study utilizes the DNA and other biospecimens of patients affected with Inflammatory Bowel Disease and healthy controls. Genetic information is analyzed as we strive to identify and better understand the way in which IBD manifests and how certain genetic traits contribute to this manifestation. Subjects from our study have already contributed to identifying genes that influence the development of IBD.

If you are in the greater New Haven area and would like to join our study as either a patient or healthy control subject, please refer to the contact information below.

  1. Please send an email to us if you are either a patient with IBD or are interested in being a healthy control; or
  2. For patients with IBD, please call (203) 785-7573; or
