This study looks at the effects of physical activity on glycaemia and daily insulin dose in sedentary people with type 1 diabetes.

It is part of the Exercise for Type 1 Diabetes (EXTOD) programme, which aims to provide evidence-based support for people living with diabetes to be able to undertake safe, effective exercise.

EXTOD-Active is being carried out by a team of researchers at Liverpool John Moores University.

This study will develop a communication screening tool to help healthcare staff support stroke patients experiencing communication problems to make decisions.

Researchers have developed a tool that aims to improve patient access to communication support during mental capacity assessments, so they can make better decisions. The VAMCAST (Validation of the MCAST Communication Screening Tool) study will user test the tool to find out if it gives correct and consistent results and if staff are able to use it accurately.

This study is being carried out by a team of researchers at the Northern Care Alliance NHS Trust in collaboration with Manchester Metropolitan University. It is funded by the NIHR (National Institute for Health and Care)

The South Asia Biobank aims to understand how genes, lifestyle and the environment interact and result in high rates of heart disease, diabetes, and other critical illnesses among South Asian people.

By collecting information from thousands of people, the South Asian Biobank will help find out why disease may affect some people more than others and lead to better prevention of high-risk cardiovascular disease and cancer.

The Antennae Project is looking to train ‘Peer Educators’ to help raise awareness and increase involvement in kidney research from Black and South Asian communities and poorer areas of Greater Manchester.

Full training will be provided, using the award-winning initiative from Kidney Research UK that has already proven to be effective in increasing representation of marginalised groups.

This project is a collaboration between Kidney Research UK, Research for the Future, and the renal department at Northern Care Alliance NHS Foundation Trust

This study will investigate how brain and skull-based tumours develop and progress.  It is looking for people who have not had a brain tumour or neurological condition to act as ‘control participants’.

Results of this study will be used to inform the development of new tests to help diagnose brain and skull-based tumours, as well as new treatments and care for the future.

It is being carried out by a team of researchers from The University of Manchester, the Geoffrey Jefferson Brain Research Centre, and Salford Royal Hospital (part of the Northern Care Alliance NHS Foundation Trust).

The Salford Kidney Study will collect and store a range of data sources that can be used to investigate and understand the causes and complications of kidney disease, monitor disease progression, and help improve patient outcomes.

Information gained from this study will be used to develop new and improved treatments.

It is being carried out by a team of researchers in the Renal Department at  Salford Royal Hospital, part of the Northern Care Alliance NHS Foundation Trust.

This study is looking for healthy volunteers to help develop a new approach to diagnosing iNPH (idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus), a brain disorder that can lead to difficulty walking, problems with thinking and reasoning, and loss of bladder control.

There is currently no research providing in-depth measurements of someone’s gait (pattern of walking), making it difficult to distinguish iNPH from other conditions that also affect gait.

It is being carried out by a team of researchers based at Salford Royal Hospital (part of the Northern Care Alliance), Manchester Metropolitan University and Gothenburg University, and is funded by the Hydrocephalus Association.

This study is investigating whether a home-based exercise programme can help people recently diagnosed with type 1 diabetes (T1D) slow down the progression of the disease.

It is part of the Exercise for Type 1 Diabetes (EXTOD) programme, which aims to provide evidence-based support for people living with diabetes to be able to undertake safe and effective exercise.

The study is being led by a team of researchers at the University of Birmingham.

Testing the effectiveness of an online intervention for parents with bipolar disorder.

Parents with bipolar disorder (BD) can find that the ups and downs of mood they experience can make parenting challenging. Many parents with BD want parenting support but worry they might lose access to their children if they disclose this to their clinicians.

The integrated bipolar parenting intervention (IBPI) in an accessible, flexible, and confidential online resource that can support parents to help their children flourish.

The IBPI has been developed by a team of researchers, clinicians, and parents with BD at Lancaster University in collaboration with Lancashire & South Cumbria NHS Foundation Trust.

The GLAD (Genetic Links to Anxiety and Depression) study is looking to understand why some people experience anxiety and depression by exploring the influence of genetic and environmental risk factors on these disorders.

Anxiety and depression are the most common mental health disorders worldwide. Findings from this study will be used to help find effective treatments and improve the lives of people experiencing these disorders.

Outdoor and indoor pollutants have been linked to a variety of adverse health effects including increasing the risk of cardiac disease and lung diseases.  It is thought that air pollution may also cause problems with memory and the brain’s ability to process information.

This study will investigate the effect of common air pollutants on brain function in healthy participants who have family members with brain disorders such as dementia.

It is being carried out by a team based at The University of Manchester and Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust and is funded by the Natural Environment Research Council.

This study is looking to understand and reduce fatigue-related symptoms experienced by people after infection with COVID-19.

Further research will assess the feasibility of a self-help intervention to help reduce symptoms of fatigue in long COVID.

This study is being led by a team of researchers based at The University of Manchester and the Salford Care Organisation (part of Northern Care Alliance NHS Foundation Trust).  It is funded by FORME (Charity No: 1045005).
