AppealsOur Goal
The GEM Project
The GEM Project is the world’s largest clinical study investigating the causes of Crohn’s disease.

The project is attempting to determine possible causes for the disease by following healthy individuals who are at higher risk for developing the disease over time. Through this international study, researchers hope to learn more about the causes of Crohn’s disease by investigating potential reasons why some family members develop the disease and others do not. First-degree relatives with Crohn’s appear to be at higher risk compared to the general population.

The GEM Project explores possible causes for Crohn’s disease by studying genetic, environmental, and microbial (GEM) factors in healthy individuals with parents or siblings who have Crohn’s disease. The research also feeds into the understanding of ulcerative colitis, a similar inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), which could lead to more targeted, and more effective treatments.
