ESGE Norgine Research Award

Reviving and accelerating CRC screening programmes during a COVID pandemic

About the ESGE Norgine research award

This award has been established to support scientific research in colorectal cancer screening with a particular focus on the recovery and acceleration of colonoscopy screening services during and post the COVID-19 pandemic.
