Posted 27 February 2017 in

The Bowel Disease Research Foundation (BDRF) in partnership with IA (The Ileostomy and Internal pouch Support Group) and The Kingston Trust are jointly funding a study with the aim of improving outcomes for people with an ileostomy.

Research Topic

Any high quality research project based on improving outcomes for patients with ileostomies will be considered. Applications which particularly focus on ileostomies in patients over the age of 50, in view of the charitable aims of the Kingston Trust, are encouraged.


Grant awards up to a maximum of £150k will be considered but it is envisaged that projects will be funded typically around £50k – £75k.


Closing date for applications: 2 May 2017

Decisions on grants approval will be made by August 2017
