You can join Research for the Future if you are over 18, have diabetes, a respiratory condition or heart disease and live in or around Greater Manchester. The majority of research opportunities we offer are based around the Greater Manchester area. If you live elsewhere in England you are still welcome to join the campaign but there will be fewer opportunities to take part.
Research has always been at the heart of the NHS. By carrying out research into what works, we are able to continually improve treatments and understand how to focus NHS resources where they will be most effective. Research helps to discover the best ways to prevent, diagnose and manage illnesses. The medicines and treatments we use today are only available thanks to people volunteering to take part in research studies in the past.
