Research we're funding

We’ve been driving world class research since 1979, awarding over £13 million in grants to date. The researchers we fund are well respected in their field and many have gone on to publish papers, receive further funding, and inform improvements in health care for people with Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis thanks to their findings.

Research partnerships

We partner on key research projects to support researchers with involving people affected by Crohn's or Colitis and communicating their results to the community. We want to connect people affected by Crohn’s and Colitis to the research we support and fund. 

Pain Collaborative Research Network

Understand about the ‘Pain Collaborative Network’ which promotes and facilitates the discussion and exchange of ideas on pain in Inflammatory Bowel Disease, which has been identified as an area of unmet need by researchers, clinicians and most importantly people living with Crohn’s and Colitis.
