The Scottish Diabetes Research Register
The Scottish Dementia Clinical Research Network
The Scottish Dementia Clinical Research Network (SDCRN) provides staff to support many types of clinical studies for people with dementia and with other neurological conditions. In addition we have a patient and public involvement group which exists to engage people who want to help design research or to present their own experiences to others or simply to suggests topics in which they would like to see research carried out.
The Network has close links with researchers elsewhere in the UK and a new register of people with dementia who are interested in participating in research will be launched shortly under the title “Join Dementia Research”. If you are interested in being part of research or our patient and public involvement group please get in touch at contact-us@SDCRN.org.uk
Learn How your Child Learns !
At St Andrew's University we are trying to answer questions about how children learn to solve problems, participate in the social world, and construct knowledge. In order to do this, we need local families to participate.
If you decide to sign up, we’ll keep your contact information in a secure and confidential location and contact you when your child is the right age for a study. Your information will not be shared with anyone not affiliated with our lab. You can let us know if you want your name removed at any point in time.
All of our studies are approved by the local ethics board and are designed to be fun and engaging for your child. Most studies involve playing short games or watching short videos.

Please get involved and spread the word about SHARE and help get the rest of the population to sign up to SHARE. Contact the SHARE team if you would like to help and would like to get promotional materials leaflets/posters etc for you to distribute. email: email@example.com
Public involvement in the design of new research projects.
Public and patient involvement (PPI) is a way of making sure that the people who are most affected by research have an opportunity to share their views of the research design, procedures and materials with the research team. The difficulty for researchers is finding members of the public and patients to help them. Please get in touch if you want to help out.
Trial Forge (www.trialforge.org), an initiative that aims to improve the efficiency of trials.
We are working to have this site to provide information on specific studies, and to provide forms for you to easily contact the relevant researchers if you wish to take part in their studies.
