Join us for an enlightening evening at Hayfield Manor Hotel at 6pm Wednesday 29th May, where we delve into the latest advancements in Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) research taking place at APC Microbiome Ireland, a world leading SFI Research Centre at University College Cork in our AUGMENT project. This event provides a unique opportunity for patients, carers, family members, and the medical community to engage directly with leading researchers and healthcare professionals.

This event is designed not just to inform but also to foster a community of support among those who live with or care for individuals with IBD. Whether you are a patient, a carer, or a medical professional, your participation is valuable. Let's connect, learn, and engage together to improve IBD care and research.


We look forward to welcoming you to an informative and engaging evening. Together, we can make a significant impact on the lives of those affected by IBD.
