The Rainin Foundation envisions a world where no one suffers from Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD). We want to achieve a better understanding of how to help patients manage symptoms and improve their lives even before a cure is obtained.
We support novel, high-risk research and challenge investigators to push boundaries. The beginning of an idea is particularly exciting to us because it’s where we can make the greatest impact. Our investments enable researchers to test ideas and gather data to advance the understanding of IBD. Beyond funding, we recognize the importance of dialogue and facilitate collaboration among innovators to move IBD research forward. We also host an annual Innovations Symposium where we invite guest speakers to share the latest IBD research.
