BIG NEWS: The CCFA Genetics Initiative has recently discovered at least two genetic pathways that are target-able by existing chemicals/drugs - one of which has already proven to be safe in humans. With continued investment into this research and advancement to clinical trials, The CCFA Genetics Initiative is on the cutting edge of changing lives of IBD patients everywhere. Learn all about these discoveries and this groundbreaking science when you visit: www.ccfa.org/genetics.

This is just one reason why we must walk for Take Steps for Crohn's & Colitis - CCFA: Our #GeneticsInitiative has just found two genetic pathways that can lead to new treatments for #Crohns and #ulcerativecolitis! This is one step closer to cures for IBD. Ground-breaking research like this is only possible through programs like Take Steps. Join us as we walk toward an IBD-free future at a walk in your area at: http://bit.ly/1e1L2y5 SHARE

Improving the quality of life of people with Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis through research.
Introduction
The Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America is a non-profit, volunteer-driven organization dedicated to finding the cure for Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. It was founded in 1967 by Irwin M. and Suzanne Rosenthal, William D. and Shelby Modell, and Henry D. Janowitz, M.D. 

Four decades ago, the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation created the field of Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis research. Today, the Foundation funds cutting-edge studies at major medical institutions, nurtures investigators at the early stages of their careers, and finances underdeveloped areas of research. Educational workshops and symposia, together with our scientific journal, Inflammatory Bowel Diseases, enable medical professionals to keep pace with this rapidly growing field. No wonder the National Institutes of Health has commended the Foundation for "uniting the research community and strengthening IBD research
