    Our Work

    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.

    In addition to research, 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





    Funding Opportunities

    New for 2015
    Applications are invited for the CICRA 2016 grants. For the first time CICRA is offering a non clinical Post Doctoral Fellowship in addition to the three funding streams of 3 year Research Fellowships, 3 year PhD studentships and Research Projects.

    Applications are invited all year round 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 related training courses or attending scientific/medical meetings.

    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.
