From time to time we will provide information here about research involvement or participation that we think may be of interest to carers. We will look at the quality and focus of research opportunities before posting them on our site, but we cannot be responsible for the conduct of these study opportunities. Researchers are welcome to email Research@dementiacarers.org.uk with a summary of their request to post information. Carers can then contact researchers directly to express their interest.
