Crohn’s Research

Crohn's ResearchIn this section, you can find out all about the Crohn’s research that forCrohns funds. Our mission is to fund research that helps those with the condition today and contributes to finding a cure for Crohn’s Disease in the future. One day we will beat Crohn’s Disease. The more research we do, the sooner that day will come.

To date we have invested over £500,000 into Crohn’s Disease research covering a wide variety of studies into the disease. These include investigations leading to a greater understanding of the condition, diagnosis, symptoms, treatments and psychological impact.

You can find out details of some of the projects we have funded since 2008 here:
