Diet and Nutrition Research Updates

The Crohn's & Colitis Foundation supports several major ongoing basic and clinical research projects on diet and nutrition to encourage cooperative efforts among physicians, scientists, research centers and different Foundation initiatives like the environmental triggers initiative and the microbiome initiative.

For instance, one of the current diet studies, the FARMM study, that overlaps with the microbiome initiative, aims to evaluate how specific diets influence intestinal bacterial diversity and by-products of their metabolism. Information gained from these studies could support the translation of new insights and discoveries into specific strategies for microbiome-targeted dietary interventions that may more effectively treat IBD.
