Targeting Research


In order to generate new ideas to better treat or cure IBD, Crohn’s and Colitis Canada supports a number of targeted research programs (Government Partnerships, Industry Partnerships, GEM Project). Our continued investment in these programs ensures a diversified research portfolio and invests strategically in programs that are key issues for our patient community.
