Help UCLH design a new cancer research study


What will I be doing?
UCLH are looking for 10 people to help them “test run” parts of an important new research study into the early detection of cancer. The purpose of the test run is to help them assess how much time it will take participants joining the study to do some relevant activities - including watching a short video about the study, reading a participant information sheet, taking measurements of height and weight, completing a health and lifestyle questionnaire and some other elements. Your involvement will help them improve the experience of people who take part in the study.

A full introduction to the study will be provided on the day. Travel expenses will be reimbursed, and light refreshments provided.

Who are UCLH looking for?
This study will be inviting people aged 50-77 so they are keen for “test participants” to be within this target group. They are also eager to include people without any knowledge or experience of cancer. There won’t be any preparation required.

UCLH Cancer Collaborative and UCL are currently developing a large research study focusing on improving the earlier diagnosis of cancer. One of the aims of the study is to develop a blood test that can detect cancer early, when it can be treated more successfully. The study is due to launch in early 2019. Their aim is to recruit 25,000 people aged 50-77 years of age, to take part.
