Biography

The Pediatric IBD Consortium was founded in 1999 and is made up of leading doctors and researchers from 15 pediatric IBD centers across the United States.

The mission of the Pediatric IBD Consortium is to give all children with IBD the opportunity to become part of a long-term research database study that will allow researchers to look for the primary causes of pediatric inflammatory bowel disease as well as to explore areas such as quality of life and growth issues.

The goal of the database study is to provide a greater understanding of the disease and ultimately to improve the lives of children with IBD by developing and maintaining a database of specific disease information about pediatric IBD patients.

The Pediatric IBD Consortium’s Patient Education Website is designed to give children with IBD and their families up-to-date, clinically based health information, tools and resources to help navigate day-to-day living with the disease.
