Research from the Patient Perspective


In 2012, for the first time ever, a person with Crohn’s and the parent of two children (one with Crohn’s and one with colitis) joined the


Crohn’s and Colitis Canada Grant Review Committee, helping to determine which research projects to fund. Their contribution proved so valuable that this role expanded this year to include two additional members of the patient community.


By joining with researchers and clinicians, these passionate and engaged individuals bring additional perspectives to the discussion about where we make our research investments. Researchers on the review panel say that this partnership has brought the patient and research communities closer together, and reinforced their shared goals.

It has been a privilege to serve as a lay reviewer on the Grants in Aid Review Panel. As a parent of two children with these diseases, the opportunity to be part of the research process gives me tremendous hope that someday cures will be found. We’re in the right country, working with amazing healthcare professionals who address these medical challenges with creativity and genius.
