Help to develop new research

If you regularly take prescribed medicines such as antidepressants, indigestion remedies, pain relief tablets or antibiotics, you could have a say in new research.

Get involved

There is growing understanding that many regularly prescribed medications can be influenced by relatively common genetic changes.

Researchers in Manchester want to explore whether information about people’s genetic information could be used by doctors when they are deciding what medication to prescribe. It’s important that patients have a say in the development of this research and can ask questions, raise any concerns and suggest ideas to improve the project.

Your role would involve taking part in friendly and informal discussion groups with the researchers and sharing your views to help make sure that the research is designed in a way that works for patients.

You don’t need any previous experience of being involved in health research to take part, just be happy to share your views and experiences, training and support will be provided.

Due to COVID-19 all of our activities are currently taking place online. We are committed to making our opportunities as inclusive and accessible as possible. We want to support you to be involved so if there is anything that we can do to enable you to take part please let us know.
