CGIBD logo

The Center for Gastrointestinal Biology and Disease (CGIBD) is a collaborative GI research center at UNC Chapel Hill and North Carolina State University that was originally established in 1983.

The mission of the CGIBD is to promote and enhance multidisciplinary digestive disease research.

The scientific focus of the CGIBD is the study of inflammation as it relates to inflammatory bowel and other digestive diseases. The center achieves these purposes through the following:

  • Core laboratories that provide training, technical support, laboratory animals, assays and other services.
  • A scientific enrichment program – seminars, lectures by visiting scientists, professional workshops, etc. – that advances the intellectual environment for GI research.
  • A professional development and training program that promotes the growth of junior faculty.

Please reference our NIH funding number – P30 DK34987 – in any publications supported by our center cores.
