Health Learnings

The Kenneth Rainin Foundation's Health Program shares insights on investments in Inflammatory Bowel Disease research.

The Kenneth Rainin Foundation invests in innovative Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) research that has the potential to improve patients’ lives. Our ultimate goal is to find a cure for this chronic disease. We partner with peer funders to gain insights on investments in IBD research and share what we learn to inform the field.

Diet And The Microbiome

The Rainin Foundation partnered with the Helmsley Charitable Trust on Evolving Research: Diet, the Microbiome and Inflammatory Bowel Disease. This 2020 report shares insights into future Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) and diet research and investments. It includes:

  • The current state of dietary interventions
  • Gaps in knowledge about the microbiome and dietary interventions
  • Potential solutions for research and diet studies
  • How funders can support focused diet and IBD research
