About the Research opportunities forum


The Research opportunities forum is a space where researchers can share opportunities for getting involved in studies.

Before researchers post on this site, their studies must have been approved by the Parkinson's UK research team. Studies that have not been approved by our research team will be removed. For each study, the team checks that the appropriate paperwork is in place and makes sure that the research is authentic and suitable for people with Parkinson’s; for example they check ethics approval, which ensures that the research meets all the required ethics standards. 

This system is in place to safeguard people who participate in research studies. However, posts about research studies should not be treated as advice or a recommendation to participate in any particular study. 

If you would like to submit your research study for approval, you can contact the Research team at research@parkinsons.org.uk

I recently took on the role of research champion for the Norwich city group via the EoERIG, and came to what I thought might be the right area to look at research opportunities/ studies and clicked on the links you have only to be told that the page does not exist or is private? I feel bound to tell you that thus far I am not overly impressed with the navigation and usability of this forum.

Hi @parkopete65, I am quite new on the site, but hope to be of some help. If it is the links to the pages before your post you are referring to, they were posted 5 years ago. If you go to the pulldown top right, there is a section called research, this should take you to the forum information. Else click on the black header at top, this takes you out of the forum and into main site, again thete is a pulldown which includes research. The same as any other forum, coments can get outdated.
