How do I get involved?

We are keen to involve patients and members of the public in all stages of our research, and there are many ways to participate.

If you are interested in taking part in the research we do here at the Newcastle Biomedical Research Centre, you can find out more information by clicking the links below which give you more information on how to participate.

Voice North was established at Newcastle University and aims to harness the mental capital and immense experience of the public in addressing the challenges and opportunities of ageing and demographic change.

Voice North is a way for the public to get involved in:

• setting priorities for research

• deciding on what the research is setting out to achieve

• planning and designing studies that are relevant to patients and in a way that they are able to participate

• recruiting people to take part in research studies, particularly by helping to ensure the information we give to patients is clear and understandable

• communicating and sharing study findings and other research activity with a wide range of public groups

Newcastle Bioresource aims to collect genetic, health and lifestyle information to enable researchers to investigate possible links between genes and the environment. It welcomes to participation of the public, and if you’d like to find out more, please contact by emailing or calling 0191 241 8626.
