Research Awards Panel

To ensure that we fund only the highest quality research, all research grant applications must go through our rigorous Peer Review process which has been certified as best practice by the Association of Medical Research Charities.

The Awards Panel is responsible for the review of all research grant applications, and making recommendations of which projects to fund to our Research Strategy and Funding Committee (“RSFC”).

Our Awards Panel has broad representation from people living with IBD and individuals with scientific or medical expertise in all health disciplines within the inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) specialty. All members have an important role to play in the Awards Panel and are treated equally, ensuring we hear from a wide range of voices to inform our work. 

From time to time we need to appoint new members to refresh the composition of our Awards Panel and/or to increase the diversity and breadth of expertise or experience on those Panels.
