Tameside Bone Metabolism study
|Dr Janice Mascarenas, researcher at Tameside & Glossop IC NHS Foundation Trust, shares her feedback having accessed Research for the Future:
My research looked at the effects of high blood glucose levels on the bone and circulation in patients with type 2 diabetes. Owing to the study’s rigid eligibility criteria, it became difficult to recruit potential people which affected the progress of my research. Fortunately, I came across Help BEAT Diabetes, a NHS-supported campaign to encourage and inform people about research opportunities. I was amazed at the response from people who were informed about my study through this campaign and were interested in taking part. I am grateful to the Research for the Future team for their efficient and diligent efforts that facilitated my study recruitment. I would encourage other researchers to utilise this resource to ensure smooth progress of their research.
|Many people are interested in contributing to research but are sometimes unaware of what they can get involved with locally. Help BEAT Diabetes is a useful resource that enables these people fulfil their contribution to research, and help future generations.|
