Patient involvement in Research Day

Young people in a meeting

Research is about finding answers. But we aren’t always asking the right questions in the right way!

Last reviewed April 2022

We want to ask the questions that will make a real difference to people with Crohn's and Colitis. You can help to shape these questions by joining our annual Patient Involvement in Research Day. 

This event provides a forum for your voice to influence the research that's being done, how it's done, and how the results are shared. 

Involving people with Crohn’s and Colitis at every stage of a research study, from design to implementation to sharing results, makes for better research, better results, and increased likelihood of improving lives and finding a cure.

Join the conversation to ensure research delivers results for you.

The best quality research happens when people with Crohn's and Colitis are involved, and you can make a difference at every stage of research.
