​Major Projects

Our research team has been conducting comprehensive studies investigating the epidemiology, genetics, pathogenesis, and treatment of IBD. We are the pioneer of the first large scale epidemiologic study of IBD across 15 countries in Asia-Pacific and an Asian Microbiota Consortium. We developed the Hong Kong IBD Registry to determine disease burden locally and set up studies of natural history and environmental risk factors of IBD to identify potential aetiological factors and preventive strategies.
