Research isn’t just lab coats and test tubes; it’s about finding answers to questions that matter. The IBD Public and Patient Involvement in Research Day is a perfect opportunity for you to have your say on what research is being done and how.
Building on the success of the past two years, we are excited to announce that this year's free virtual event will take place from 10am to 2pm on Saturday 6 November 2021. We will bring together researchers, healthcare professionals, the public, and people with Crohn’s and Colitis to engage in an open discussion about research, with poster sessions and polls. All you need to do is register online then tune in via Zoom. You can read about last year's event here.
I just wanted to say a personal thank you for a great webinar. Excellent presentations, Q&A sessions and polls. As someone with Crohn's, I really appreciated the opportunity to actively participate and get several key questions answered. I learnt a lot and especially appreciated the high quality of the interactions and the openness of the academic presenters
We are delighted to announce the six researchers who will be presenting on the day and asking for your feedback on their studies:
Using Mini Guts to study Crohn's and Colitis - Dr Gregory Sebepos-Rogers
Psychological and Biological Pain Profiling - Iman Khwaja
Mini-MARVEL study for Ulcerative Colitis - Michelle Wilson
Attitudes about Covid-19 and Health (ATTACH) Study - Dr Anna Hood
Patient Data driving new treatment development - Gut Reaction Team
Personalised Medicine for Ulcerative Colitis - Dr Matthias Friedrich
There will also be a variety of virtual posters to look at on our website during the breaks so you can learn even more about other research into Crohn’s and Colitis that is currently taking place. This is an exciting chance to learn about innovative and exciting new research, to speak with pioneering IBD researchers, and to help shape the research of the future. Getting involved in this simple way can bring your voice to a conversation that will ensure that research delivers results for everyone affected by Crohn's and Colitis.
