We have worked with our members, healthcare professionals, our Health Advisory Council, researchers and research organisations, and policy makers to improve the lives of people living with coeliac disease and other gluten related immune conditions. Through collaboration with the James Lind Alliance Priority Setting Partnership and our Research Strategy Board we have set out our research goals and research priorities in our latest Research Strategy.
Since 2005 we have committed around £3M for research and now through our Research Fund appeal we have set ourselves an ambitious target to raise a further £5M for research in the next few years. Our Research Strategy Board brings the experience and expertise to help us spend money on research into coeliac disease and the gluten free diet as effectively as possible, guided by our Research Strategy.
The Research Strategy Board advises our Board of Governors on the best practice for reviewing and awarding research grants and any necessary policies relating to our Research Strategy, including intellectual property rights, data sharing and ethics.
