Take part in research
This could mean taking part in a drug trial or giving a blood sample, completing a questionnaire, or even taking part in a focus group. Involving people with Crohn’s and Colitis at every stage of a study makes for better research, better results, and increased likelihood of improving lives and finding a cure.
We are here to support you to take part in a wide range of high-quality research studies from Universities, NHS Trusts, and other accredited research institutions. All studies below have UK ethical approval and help us work towards achieving our research strategy.
There are more opportunities to take part in research through IBD Clinical Trials and the UK Clinical Trials Gateway. If you are interested in taking part in a clinical trial, we suggest you discuss this with your Healthcare Professional before signing up.
