The GEM Project is an international research study attempting to determine possible causes for Crohn’s Disease by following healthy individuals who are at a higher risk for developing the disease over time. We encourage healthy individuals who have a sibling and/or parent with Crohn’s Disease to join the effort and help find a cause.
