Trials in progress


Research and the clinical trial are an essential part of the development of modern medicine. It ensures that pharmaceuticals are not released onto the market without evidence that they are effective and safe. Medical disasters in the past such as thalidomide show us what can happen if medicines are released to the public without proof of their safety.

At the moment we are seeking participants for clinical trials into new treatments for Type 1 Diabetes. We will also have a study on endometriosis starting within the next year. To find out more about these studies, email

We are also seeking participants for studies on polycystic ovary syndrome

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)

We are looking to identify genes that may contribute to polycystic ovarian syndrome.

We need women to donate a blood sample who either:

  • Have a diagnosis of polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)


  • Have a history of regular menstrual periods
