To find out more about current neurological studies you can view a list of studies on the NIHR Clinical Research Network Portfolio Database.
The NIHR Clinical Research Network has been enormously successful in integrating clinical research into NHS clinical service provision, and both developing and delivering a large practice changing portfolio of clinical trials.
Our local teams of research staff are specialists in facilitating the set up and recruitment to neurological disorders studies in England. We have substantial experience of supporting all types of research studies including complex and multi-centre clinical interventions.
A great example of our commitment to widen access to patients is the MENDS study (looking at the use of melatonin to treat children with neuro-developmental disorders and impaired sleep). Community paediatricians identified children in care or being looked after by their extended family. This required working with local authorities, social services and the children’s families to gain consent but it was a valuable approach to widening access to a very difficult to reach patient population.
