Who gets IBD and why?
Please note that for mobiles we stream the presentation slides and audio of the speaker.
Dr Parkes and Dr Gordon analyse who gets inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and why? Dr Gordon talks about the role played by genetics and heritability, looking particularly at twin studies, as well as considering the impact of environment and diet.
Dr Parkes looks at the genetics involved in inflammatory bowel disease, breaking down the interface between genes, in particular microbiota and epigenetics, and the environment.
