Crohn’s & Colitis UK Research Champion & PROFILE Trial Ambassador

We are looking for a person with Crohn’s Disease who can help raise patient and public awareness of Crohn’s & Colitis UK, encourage more patients to get involved in Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) research, and act as a trial ambassador for the PROFILE trial. 

This is an exciting opportunity to help shape our brand-new Research Champion programme which is an initiative to create a community of highly knowledgable patient volunteers who will help to form the bridge between researchers and patients looking to get involved in research. In addition to this role, the successful candidate will also be taking on an active role as PROFILE trial ambassador. PROFILE is a randomised, multi-centre trial in patients newly diagnosed with Crohn’s disease. PROFILE is the first ever trial to test whether personalised medicine might be possible in Crohn’s disease, and could change how Crohn’s Disease is treated in the future.
