Charity Mission Statement:
Every year more than 41,000 people in the UK are diagnosed with bowel cancer and over 250,000 individuals live with Inflammatory Bowel Disease. Bowel & Cancer Research looks forward to a day when no one will die of bowel cancer or have to live with chronic bowel disease. To bring this day closer, we invest in the best science across the UK.
From the National Bowel Research Centre and research labs around the country, we aim to deliver our vision by funding scientific research to save lives and improve the quality of life for individuals with bowel cancer and other bowel problems, such as Colitis, Crohn’s and Irritable Bowel Syndrome. We also encourage our next generation of research experts by supporting a dedicated PhD studentship programme. We believe that we make research better when we involve the public in all its aspects, so we have a unique programme to make this happen called People and Research Together (PaRT). We want to support people who live with bowel conditions and educate the public about what it's like to live with a chronic bowel condition, so we run engaging campaigns aimed at challenging enduring myths and taboos.
