Take part in clinical research
Clinical research is medical research involving people. There are two main types, clinical trials (also called interventional trials) and observational studies.
- A clinical trial tests an intervention/treatment e.g. a potential drug, medical device, behavioural intervention or procedure in people. They are the primary way that researchers find out if a new treatment, is more effective and/or safer in people than the standard treatment available.
- In an observational study, researchers observe participants on their current treatment plan and track health outcomes.
All studies advertised have UK ethical approval and have been assessed for their suitability against Crohn’s & Colitis UK’s 5-year research strategy. If you are interested in taking part in any of the studies listed below, we advise you to discuss this with your Healthcare Professional.
