Research strategy & management

We have set out a three year plan to improve the lives of people of all ages with Crohn’s Disease or Ulcerative Colitis. 

We hope that the research we support will provide a new hope for patients. Research in Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) has already led to patient benefits. Our continued investment in medical, psychological, social and health service research will lead to improvements in the treatments and care available to patients.

Benefits from research are not always immediate but can shape future discoveries and small research studies often lead to further larger programmes of research. It is crucial we continue to raise funds to support new and innovative research. 

Our Research Management Overview briefly explains our procedures with further details available from the Research Team. 

As a member of the AMRC we follow their guidelines for good practice in research. We have been awarded the AMRC Best Practice in Peer Review Certification
