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.

The new Jeffrey Cheah Biomedical Centre - CITIID

See the home of CITIID being built in this fantastic time-lapse video. From basement to water tight in 17 months. The Jeffrey Cheah Bimedical Centre is now complete and home to the Cambridge Immunology Network Coordinator.


‘Fibroblast’ has been developed from a conversation between Harold Offeh and Dr Alice Denton, a scientist based at the Babraham Institute and a member of the Cambridge Immunology Network. Offeh was particularly interested in the character and roles played by particular cells in the immune system, as well as the immune system’s role as a primary source of protection and care. The film takes as a starting point microscopic images of broblast cells, an area of research for Dr Denton.
