Dr Miles Parkes talks about the new IBD BioResource

The goal of the new IBD BioResource is to accelerate research in Crohn’s disease and Ulcerative Colitis and build on recent major advances in understanding of the genetic basis of these conditions. The IBD BioResource will be part of the NIHR BioResource – comprising volunteers from around the UK who are willing to be approached to participate in research studies and trials on the basis of their genetic make-up. The IBD BioResource is being launched for roll-out nationwide through 2016.
