Join a research study

Every day at the Centre for Brain Research our researchers are working hard to find and develop new treatments for brain disease.

Alzheimer’s, stroke, epilepsy, Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, Huntington’s and other brain diseases are devastating conditions for both patients and their families. We need to learn more about how our brain works, how these diseases change our biology and how we can halt that process.

More research is essential. Yet without volunteers, many of our health and medical studies simply won’t happen. We need healthy volunteers as well as people living with neurological conditions to participate.

If you are interested in contributing to current or future research at the centre, you can join the volunteer register. From time to time, administrators for the Centre for Brain Research may search the database for people who might be eligible to take part in ethically approved research projects at the centre. Information about the study is then sent out to potential volunteers, along with how to get in touch if they are interested in participating.

  • The register is a secure database, which can only be accessed by centre administrators or researchers.
  • The information on the register is only used for this purpose, and will not be made available to any other people or groups. The Centre for Brain Research recognises the importance of your privacy and safeguarding your personal information.
  • If you decide to join the register, you can change or delete your information at any time by contacting the centre. The register has been approved by the Northern A Regional Ethics Committee on 16 June 2010 with ethics reference NTA - formerly NTX/09/90/EXP.
