Take part in research

We connect people affected by Crohn’s or Colitis to a wide range of high-quality research studies from Universities, NHS Trusts and other accredited research institutions. 

You can also find more clinical studies at IBD Clinical Trials and the UK Clinical Trials Gateway

There are three main types of research here:

  1. Clinical trials: A new intervention or treatment (e.g. a potential drug, medical device, behavioural intervention or procedure) is tested in people.
  2. Observational studies: Researchers observe participants on their current treatment plan and track health outcomes.
  3. Social or psychological studies: Researchers survey and discuss patient experiences and preferences.

All studies advertised have UK ethical approval and have been assessed for their suitability against Crohn’s & Colitis UK’s 5-year research strategy.  If you are interested in taking part in a clinical trial listed below, we advise you to discuss this with your Healthcare Professional.
