Take part in research
Crohn’s & Colitis UK aims to raise awareness of the importance of research and encourage people affected by Crohn's or Colitis to consider taking part as research participants.
Research is vital in helping us to improve existing services and treatments and discover new ones, as well as showing what doesn’t work.
Ongoing clinical studies can be found below. You can also sign up to be emailed about research opportunities relevant to you.
You can find more clinical studies at IBD Clinical Trials and the UK Clinical Trials Gateway. Studies listed on our website must meet specific criteria for inclusion. If you are interested in taking part in Crohn's or Colitis research ask your consultant or nurse specialist or GP about suitable trials or studies.
If you are a researcher and would like your study to be considered, please complete our Take Part in Research form and return via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We do not accept applications from BSc or MSc level candidates. For further information on our Take Part in Research programme, please refer to our policy here.
