Our researchers need your help

Before we start any new research, we want to make sure that it is relevant to local people; will help people with a particular disease or condition; and will help to increase knowledge and evidence about effective treatments.

Below you’ll find information about opportunities for you to help research teams in Nottingham to develop their ideas and projects.

You don’t need to be an expert in clinical research, or be involved in a research trial. In most cases you will be asked for general feedback which will help us to understand how our research could help people just like you.

If you’ve got a few minutes and would like to help, please take a look at our current opportunities. Thank you!
