The focus for the inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) research group is clinical epidemiology, prognostic research and patient-reported outcomes research within IBD (Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis).

We organise and conduct large population-based cohort studies as well as local interventional and quality studies, and we use nationwide patient registries. 

The IBD research group has a strong clinical affiliation and a broad network of collaborators in several research fields including epidemiology, health economy, biostatistics and medical informatics, patient reported outcomes research, study of the microbiome, genetics and nutrition.

Over the last years we have had a special interest in the changes in IBD treatment patterns, including the introduction and use of new targeted therapies at local, regional and national level.
