The Crohn’s in Childhood Research Association (CICRA) is dedicated to creating a wider understanding of Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis, particularly as it affects children and young adults. It raises funds to support approved medical and scientific research aimed at finding more effective treatments and an eventual cure.
CICRA sponsors Research Fellowships and PhD studentships and gives grants for approved research projects in major gastroenterological centres nationwide. Investment in research has led to new treatments to help sufferers and has helped to train many of the specialists who today treat children throughout the UK.
CICRA offers support to children, young people and their families affected by Crohn’s or Colitis by organising three meetings each year, one in London and two in different regions of the UK. These days offer parents, children and young people an informal day of meeting others and learning more about their condition including small ‘meet the expert’ sessions.
The 2012 call for applications has now closed. Following Peer Review the 2013 grants will be announced late February. Further calls for applications for a Research Fellowship, PhD Studentship or Research Project will be offered during 2013 and dates announced here later.
Applications are invited from UK based health professionals, and students involved in IBD research, for a Bursary Grant of up to £400 to help with costs for attending scientific/medical meetings or related training courses.
Applications for the annual John Earnshaw Award of £1,000 are invited from CICRA funded Research Fellows, and others in training in the UK in the area of Paediatric IBD, specifically to help with costs of attending UK and International scientific/educational congresses.
