COLORS in IBD
We established the COLORS in IBD study (COLitis of early Onset - Rare diseaseS withIN IBD disease phenotypes) to investigate novel genetic effects in early onset intestinal inflammation. COLORS is a collaboration with the Sanger Center Cambridge and the Wellcome Trust Center of Human Genomics (WTCHG) Oxford.
Our collaboration allows us to investigate patients with pediatric onset of IBD by modern genetic methods and to compare genotypes with functional immune responses. COLORS in IBD also has several international collaborators, increasing our access to patients and patient data.
