In 1994, Dr. Charles N. Bernstein established the Centre, which is focused on research into Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. The centre, which has received international attention and recognition for its research, has established the largest IBD database in North America.

In memorium: Denis Krause, PhD. Denis joined our group in 2003, having taken a position as Associate Professor of Agriculture in the Department of Animal Sciences at University of Manitoba. He had left a position in Queensland Australia and moved his young family to Winnipeg. He was an expert veterinary microbiologist with a special interest in IBD. Over a short 8 year span Denis became a world renown microbiologist at the cutting edge of finding bugs that may cause IBD. He was awarded with millions of dollars in research grants and was regarded as one of the young stars of the University of Manitoba. He was a very important friend and collaborator of our IBD team. His untimely death at age 46 from cancer leaves behind rich memories and his loving family of wife Alice and sons David, Jonathon and Josh. For those interested donations may be made to the Krause Family Education Fund at the Steinbach Credit Union, Winnipeg, Manitoba.
