The Importance of IBD Research Foundations
One vital part of treating Crohn’s disease, or really any other disease, is medical research that aims to better understand how Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis (IBD) works. Learning how Crohn’s works aids in the development of treatment options. Supporting research Various foundations help to provide monetary resources for research organizations across the nation. The funds are needed to keep the research centers open and fully functional. Research facilities distribute the donated funds wisely by sending them directly to programs that need them the most and that show promise in making major scientific breakthroughs for IBD. Numerous top research facilities exist across the U.S., many of them residing in teaching hospitals. Examples are John’s Hopkins University, Texas A&M University, Princeton University, California Institute of Technology, and UT Southwestern University, to name a few. What types of research programs are given funds? Two types of research branches exist, known as basic and clinical researchers. Generally, basic research studies the interactions of human genes, bacteria, and immune responses of those who live with IBD. Clinical research primarily translates the findings from basic research and puts them together to find new treatment options. Although the branches work on different aspects, both research methods contribute to learning how IBD works. Researchers realized that working together allows more people to understand causes and symptoms. Putting all of these factors together helps to work on finding a cure for those who suffer from this horrible disease. Research organizations have learned a great deal about IBD, making significant advancements and discoveries. But so much still is not understood. The pressing
