_____________________________________

The Farncombe Family Digestive Health Research Institute is an integrated group of clinical and basic scientists dedicated to understanding the impact of digestive health and nutrition on disease across the life span.

The Institute is focused on developing new strategies for the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of intestinal diseases such as Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, which will have global benefits. However, the focus of research in the Institute is not limited to digestive diseases; rather, it includes diseases of many other organ systems that may be caused and/or profoundly influenced by digestive health and nutrition.
