The German Association for Chronic Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (DACED) is a working group of the German Society for Digestive and Metabolic Diseases (DGVS)
DACED serves the scientific exchange within basic science and clinical research in the field of IBD. The aim is to find causes of IBD and to improve the treatment of patients through coordinated and targeted research.
There is a close collaboration with the Competence Network on Intestinal Diseases (Kompetenznetz Darmerkrankungen) as well as with the German IBD Study Group. Since 2011, the German representatives of the European Crohn’s- and Colitis Organization (ECCO) have been elected together with the Competence Network Intestinal Diseases.
Since 2014, DACED has been integrated into the Competence Network for Intestinal Diseases. Accordingly, it provides two members in the board of the competence network. With the integration of the DACED, the non-clinical IBD research landscape is included in the competence network and thus the topic „IBD“ is represented in Germany across all areas by the competence network. The aim of the cooperation agreement is to support experimental and clinical work in the field of inflammatory bowel diseases across the network boundaries to strengthen research and to improve the care of IBD sufferers.
