Intestinal Microbiome Studies:
Patients undergoing a procedure called endoscopy, including those who might have IBD, are being recruited for this study. We are working with our colleagues at the University of Ottawa’s Department of Biochemistry, Microbiology and Immunology to determine whether there are groups of intestinal microbes that may play a role in the inflammation associated with IBD.
