Galway Bay fm newsroom – A team at NUI Galway is seeking participants for a major study on Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
Researchers at the university’s School of Psychology hope to recruit 1,000 women for the project.
IBS commonly causes cramping, abdominal pain, bloating, gas, diarrhoea and constipation.
Participants will be asked to answer an online survey about their symptoms.
