As a scientist or healthcare professional, you understand how critical your efforts are in finding cures for Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, or caring for the people who have these diseases. For more than 40 years, Foundation-funded research has been contributing to the knowledge and understanding of IBD. With more than 1,000 grants awarded to date, the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation continues to play a significant role in nearly every major scientific breakthrough in IBD. Many of today's most prominent researchers have received training awards from the Foundation early in their careers - perhaps you will be the next one!
