Insights from the IBD Prevention Workshop

Helmsley’s Crohn’s Disease Program aims to find a cure for Crohn’s disease (CD) – a long-term pursuit and one complemented by crucial endeavors, including trying to understand how we might prevent CD in the first place.


In 2019, Helmsley’s Crohn’s Disease Program convened leading scientists and clinicians in the fields of inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) and other chronic immune-mediated inflammatory diseases at the Royal Danish Academy of Sciences and Letters in Copenhagen to discuss research in IBD and the steps necessary to achieve IBD prevention. Those discussions, along with a summary of key questions and next steps for advancing prevention studies, are captured in “Insights from the IBD Prevention Workshop.”
