GENERATING NEW IDEAS TO BETTER TREAT OR CURE IBD


In order to generate new ideas to better treat or cure IBD, the CCFC supports a number of different research programs (Innovation Grants, Government Partnerships, Industry Partnerships, GEM Projects, and Grants-in-Aid). Our continued investment in these programs ensures a diversified research portfolio which encourages innovation and builds on the scientific breakthroughs achieved to date.


Innovations in IBD Research grants provide seed funding for investigators to explore novel, high-risk, breakthrough research ideas or strategies that have the potential to cure or more effectively control IBD.
