What you’ll be asked to do as part of different studies can vary widely – from answering a survey to trialling new medicines over a number of months. We have accounts from a number of past research participants that you can read here.
When you match to a study, you’ll be able to view more information about the requirements of the study online on your Volunteer Information Page.
Participating in research can be a rewarding experience in many different ways. You may meet people who have had similar experiences to you, or you may learn more about the disease and the care or treatment options available.
While the service is free to use, we understand that we are asking you to give your time. This valuable gift is one made to your own and future generations.
Remember: Choosing to get involved in research is an important personal decision. You will never have to participate in a study unless you decide it is the right thing for you or the person you helped to register. It is also important to discuss the possible advantages and disadvantages of participation with the researcher or your own doctor, nurse or other health professional.
