Research saves and changes lives

More than 41,000 men and women are diagnosed with bowel cancer every year. Around 300,000 individuals live with Inflammatory Bowel Disease and thousands of others with IBS.

We fund the best science across the UK and our next generation of research experts through a dedicated PhD programme.
