This Spring, the Alberta IBD Consortium held a retreat in Canmore, Alberta.

Attended by Consortium members and trainees, Dr. Hans Barkema opened with a brief history of AIBDC and highlighted the accomplishments and progress since 2009. For the next two days, members presented updates on:

*current priorities in IBD research

*the role of biobanking in health research and identification of new opportunities for the AIBDC biobank

*update on the collection of AIBDC‘s biobank and database

*new research funding opportunities and collaborations

Trainees also attending the retreat participated in a discussion series and presented their contributions to AIBDC members.

In light of the productivity and success of AIBDC, members are looking forward to continuing and pursuing multidisciplinary, multi-institutional research on IBD.
