Paid participation in Uni study.
« on: 04 May 2018, 02:08:07 PM »
Hi all

I have approved the following request:

"We are looking for volunteers to take part in our research study at the Vision and Eye Research Unit, Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge.

Volunteers should be aged 40 years and over. We are looking for individuals who have diabetes and also those without diabetes.]The research project involves examination of the eyes before and after watching a film, in order to assess how different environmental conditions may affect the eyes. Participation requires attendance on one weekday from 10 am to 3.30 pm, dates are flexible. There is a lunch break in the middle to watch the film and refreshments are provided throughout. We will reimburse £15.

Please contact Dr Farouk if you wish to participate or for further information:Lavanta.Farouk (remove deliberate space before @) Thank you."

Ooh, what an interesting project! ("Interesting" is the highest compliment one researcher can give to another, haha!) Sadly I don't fit the criteria but best of luck and look forward to hearing about the results!

Well I'm the right age now and T2.

However, it'd cost me about £30 for a day return from London to Cambridge according to and then I'd miss a days work also so I can't justify it financially.

It sounds really interesting so it'd be great to hear about the results.

I'd be very happy to participate if they would cover transport costs - business class :).

As eyes have been mentioned I'll post on mine separately.
