Our Research

We’re working on a totally new creative way of tackling Crohn’s and Colitis by ‘switching off’ the inflammation in the gut completely. We hope this work will take us one step closer to a groundbreaking new treatment for Crohn’s and Colitis.

Our supporters have funded research into Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis for almost 40 years. 

This has already led to innovative research into the conditions, and we have big plans for the future.

From uncovering the causes, understanding and improving treatments, and providing greater support for people to live better with their symptoms, this research is making an incredible difference.

Together, we want to improve the quality of life for everyone living with Crohn’s and Colitis, and end the stigma surrounding the disease – and the psychological impact this can cause. 

Ultimately, we want to find a cure. 

We can’t do this without your help. 98% of the funding we invest in research comes from membership, donations and fundraising by people like you.

There has never been a more important time to support research into Crohn’s and Colitis.
