Currently the Gut Foundation is funding some research into the role, of the Gut microbiome (Bacteria) in the development of precancerous colorectal lesions (Polyps) The hope is that this study will allow our researchers to develop early stage markers of the disease.

Support our latest Research project for IBD

Canterbury has one of the developed world’s highest rates of Inflammatory Bowel disease with one in 80 people affected. Many people go undiagnosed for many years particularly young people, which has a significant impact on their physical and mental well-being and therefore their education and work life. Better tools for the ongoing assessment and diagnosis of gut inflammation should lead directly to improved outcomes for children and adults with IBD. 

You can give a one-off donation or set-up a regular gift by using the form below.
