September 16, 2021
Crohn’s and Colitis Canada has awarded $2.5M to researchers at institutions across Canada who are investigating bowel disease. The grants, which are provided by the Grants-in-Aid of Research Competition, will fund eight projects focused on cures for Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis or improving quality of life for patients. Postsecondary institutions receiving funding include the University of British Columbia, McMaster University, University of Manitoba, University of Alberta, and the Université Laval. “These eight projects will lead us to new scientific insights about the triggers of these complex diseases and how to evolve treatments and patient care, which is critical as every person living with Crohn’s or colitis has their own unique needs,” said President of Crohn’s and Colitis Canada Lori Radke.
