Getting involved in research design

We are keen to work in partnership with patients and public to help ensure our research remains relevant to the people it aims to benefit.

If you have experience of living with diabetes and neuropathy (nerve damage) we would like to invite you to contact us to discuss how you might get involved in the development of our research projects.

Please email: Dr Joanne Paton to find out more.


Getting involved in clinical trials 

We are currently looking for volunteers to take part in a lab based study looking at the effect of different insoles on balance whilst standing still and stepping up a step. 

The study involves a  single visit to our gait lab (PAHC Marjon Campus opposite Derriford Hospital). The session will take about 1 hour.

If you are diabetic, think you might have lost the feeling in your feet and are interested in taking part please email Joanne at the above address to find out more.
