How We Fund Research

Every year, Crohn’s and Colitis Canada funds progressive and innovative projects that bring together the finest scientific minds to find new approaches and treatments for Crohn’s and colitis. Our highly competitive granting process assigns funding applications to an independent peer review panel of scientific experts and lay reviewers who represent the needs and priorities of our community of stakeholders. Applications are evaluated on scientific merit, relevancy and potential benefit to Crohn’s and colitis patients. “The Grant Review Committee is dedicated to selecting excellent research that addresses the needs of patients and the Crohn’s and colitis community as a whole” says Marla Rosen, a Grant Review Committee lay member and the mother of a child with Crohn’s.
