Research Volunteers Forum

This website is for everyone with an interest in the subject of people taking part in research and provides an information resource to which you are inited to contribute.


The aim of the Workshop was to generate discussion on the role and contribution of volunteer research participants (aka ‘research subjects’) in medical research in the context of the views, policies and programmes of a wide range of organisational and individual stakeholders in the research enterprise  and to review the scope for joint and individual action.
