The CCFC Grants in Aid of Research program is intended to support research on inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). This research program helps to advance prevention, treatments, health policy and to ultimately find cures.

GIA’s support research projects with a defined objective, conducted by an investigator working alone or in collaboration with others. Grants will be awarded for a maximum of three years, not to exceed $125,000 per annum. A grant of $5,000, provided in partnership with CIHR’s the Institute of Nutrition, Metabolism and Diabetes’ (INMD), will be awarded as a one-time lump sum to the highest ranked project from a new investigator. This funding will help support travel and ancillary costs for the individual to attend or speak at gastroenterology conferences or to purchase essential equipment necessary to their study.
