Crohn’s and Colitis UK in research partnership with forCrohns

19 May 2015

In an exciting partnership, national charity forCrohns are supporting UK patient organisation Crohn’s and Colitis UK with an incredible £70,000 that will fully fund two critical research projects at the University of Oxford and the University of Liverpool.

The innovative research will investigate the roles of bacteria and fungi in Crohn’s which could eventually lead to new treatments. The Crohn’s and Colitis UK research panel selected six projects for funding in 2015 from a very strong field of applications. A total of £430,000 was awarded.

Lisa Walker, co- founder of forCrohns said;

“We are delighted to work in partnership with Crohn’s and Colitis UK to ensure that more scientific investigation into the causes and understanding of inflammatory bowel diseases is funded. All funded projects are of the highest quality with the potential to benefit the greatest number of people. This means we can ensure our supporters' funding continues to be spent where it will be of most use and we are very excited to pledge these hard-earned donations to these terrific areas of research”
