Project Title

Early Crohn's disease: understanding the pathogenesis, predicting disease behavior and response to therapy and modifying disease course

Project Description

Crohn's disease is rarely diagnosed early, making the disease virtually impossible to be studied throughout its entire course of development. The study aims to undertake an integrative and multidisciplinary research approach by focusing on processes that occur at initial stages of Crohn's disease and that may reveal what constitutes its specific causes.
