Welcome to Patients Active in Research

Our site promotes partnerships between patients, carers, other members of the public, and medical researchers. It has been developed with patients and aims to ensure that medical research focuses on what really matters to those affected by ill health and is carried out in ways that encourage them to take part. Opportunities to take part in medical research studies are also promoted through the site.
