The Pseudo Obstruction Research Trust (PORT) was formed, in 2006, with the aim to fund research into the rare and debilitating disease, Chronic Intestinal Pseudo Obstruction (CIPO), Chronic Intestinal Pseudo Obstruction, severe dysmotility, gastroparesis and other rare gastrointestinal neuromuscular disorders, as well as the frequent complication of these conditions, intestinal failure.

Bowel Research UK is dedicated to finding effective treatments to bowel disease, to save lives and to help people suffering with bowel conditions to enjoy a better quality of life. Bowel Research UK and the Pseudo Obstruction Research Trust are passionate about supporting research in this field and since 2017 we have joined forces to co-ordinate an annual grant call.

Pseudo Obstruction Research Trust are providing funding up to £50,000 for this new research call. Bowel Research UK will provide the support services for grant awarding and management purposes regarding this call.

PORT and Bowel Research UK have opened this new grant call to provide financial support for the collection of proof-of-concept data that will enable a high-quality competitive application to be made subsequently to a research council or other large funder.

Clinician and scientific investigators, including academic clinical lecturers, based at a UK or European university or hospital may apply.

All submissions would have to be received by Bowel Research UK no later than 30th June 2021. One grant, worth up to £50,000 is available to fund direct costs associated with the project.
