She has special interest in understanding and treating patients with very early onset IBD (VEOIBD), defined as disease onset at less than 6 years of age, and those with disease that has been refractory to conventional therapies. Dr. Collen completed an Advanced Fellowship in Pediatric Inflammatory Bowel Disease at Boston Children’s Hospital and is a recipient of a Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation Research Fellows Award. Her research interests are in understanding the underlying pathways that drive disease in her IBD patients with the ultimate goal of advancing options for personalized medicine.
