People in Research connects researchers who want to involve members of the public with members of the public who want to get involved.

There is:

  • a library of videos explaining what it’s like to get involved in research
  • a database of current opportunities to get involved
  • researchers can register to add their own projects to the database
  • you can sign up to get email alerts of new opportunities that match your interests.

The website also has an extensive library of videos of peoples’ experiences of public involvement in research.  This includes the perspectives of patients and researchers.  A selection of the videos are embedded below:
