Read The Power of Research – 10 years of Crohn’s and Colitis UK research to find out about how £5.2 million has been awarded to over 80 groundbreaking research projects since 2008.
Research we’ve funded has led to vital discoveries about the conditions – and continues to do so.
But we don’t stop there. We also finance projects looking at the life impacts of Crohn’s and Colitis, and the provision of health services for these and other forms of Inflammatory Bowel Disease.
Our aim is to improve lives right now and, ultimately, to find a cure. The studies we fund help health professionals develop better treatments and support for people with these conditions.
Are you a researcher? We also make a range of awards for research into the medical and social impacts of Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis. Find out how you can apply.
