The establishment of a national tissue bank for inflammatory bowel disease research

charityThe Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of Canada (CCFC) is a registered Canadian charity whose mission is to “find the cure” for inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Its highest priority is fundraising for research through the collaborative efforts of volunteers across Canada.

The Foundation invests nearly three million dollars (Canadian) in research on an annual basis. In addition to funding grants-in-aid, the Foundation also funds a national IBD research network – The CCFC IBD Network – to initiate and oversee larger projects whose scope exceeds those of individual or group grants that are funded through its grant-in-aid program. Recently, the Network established a national tissue and data bank to support (via tissue and associated patient data) IBD research in Canada. This bank is believed to be the first of its kind in the world. Cheapest treatment – buy amaryl to always have a wide choice of options.
