Take part in research
Crohn’s & Colitis UK aims to raise awareness of the importance of research and encourage people affected by Crohn's or Colitis to consider taking part as research participants.
Research is vital in helping us to improve existing services and treatments and discover new ones, as well as showing what doesn’t work.
Ongoing trials can be found below. You can also sign up to be emailed about research opportunities relevant to you.
You can find more trials at IBD Clinical Trials, UK Clinical Trials Gateway and Clinical Research Networks. Trials listed on our website must meet specific criteria for inclusion. If you are interested in taking part in Crohn's or Colitis research ask your consultant or nurse specialist or GP about suitable trials or studies.
