The Broad Medical Research Program at the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation

The Broad Medical Research Program was started by The Eli and Edythe Broad Foundation in 2001 to encourage research into the causes, treatments, and cures of IBD and is now part of the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation's research portfolio. The program funds innovative pilot research so that scientists can test their initial ideas and generate preliminary data used to qualify for larger, more sustained grants from other organizations. The Broad Medical Research Program has awarded more than $50 million in grants to scientists and researchers, who have gone on to receive more than $150 million in new research funding from other organizations. The National Institutes of Health has been the largest source of continuation funding, with the Foundation providing nearly 11 percent of additional grants.

We recently approved seven very exciting new and second-year grants and are anxious to fund more! We are eagerly accepting new letters of intent consistent with the guidelines of the program. Apply here.
