Kenneth Rainin Over $2 Million for Cutting-edge IBD Research

Tuesday, October 21, 2014

NCG Member the Kenneth Rainin Foundation announced last week that it will grant $2.2 million to scientists to conduct Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) research.

The Rainin Foundation offers support for cutting-edge projects that typically are not eligible for funding from more traditional sources due to their ground-breaking, pioneering nature. Grantees are selected from a competitive, diverse pool of applicants for scientific projects that demonstrate the potential to yield transformative discoveries and major new insights into the causes and cures for IBD.

Two teams of scientists selected for this year’s Synergy Awards, the Foundation’s newest grant program, will receive a total of $400,000 to support their collaborative projects.
