NIHR Be Part of Research

The UK Clinical Trials Gateway has now been replaced with Be Part of Research.

Be Part of Research is a National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) website to help you find out about health and social care research that is taking place across the UK.

The website allows anyone to search for studies that are open to recruitment by keyword and location, as well as filtering by condition, for example ‘anxiety’.

Support dementia research

The NIHR, in partnership with Alzheimer Scotland, Alzheimer's Research UK and Alzheimer's Society, have developed Join Dementia Research. This a service which allows people to register their interest in participating in dementia research and be matched to suitable studies.

The DETERMIND study is looking for people who have themselves or know someone who has been diagnosed with dementia in the past six months. The research team will ask questions about health, memory and wellbeing to better understand which groups of people have better or worse outcomes following diagnosis of dementia and why there are inequalities in care and outcomes.

Genetic Links to Anxiety and Depression (GLAD)

The Genetic Links to Anxiety and Depression (GLAD) study is a project set up to support studies exploring risk factors for depression and/or anxiety. It is led by the NIHR Mental Health BioResource and researchers at King’s College London, in collaboration with researchers at Ulster University, University of Edinburgh, and Cardiff University.

To take part in the GLAD study, you must:
  • have experienced clinical anxiety and/or depression during your life
  • be aged 16 or above
  • live in the UK
