Bowel & Cancer Research

Bowel & Cancer Research funds the best science across the UK and supports our next generation of research experts through a dedicated PhD studentship programme.

Founded 1990

  • Mission statement

    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 and 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, or 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.
