Get involved

There are two main ways to get involved in research – taking part in a research study or taking part in one of our patient and public involvement and engagement (PPI/E) activities.

You can also help fundraise for research, or even come up with ideas for research that would help you, your family, your friends or the wider community.

How do I take part in a study?

If you are interested in your child taking part in a research study as a patient, please speak to your doctor who will refer you to the appropriate study team.

You can find out more about some of our current studies on our studies and trials page. You can also email our team

What is patient and public involvement and engagement?

In the Evelina London research department, patient and public involvement and engagement (PPI/E) is about making sure that the research we do is carried out 'with' or 'by' people just like you.

We hold workshops and events about current and upcoming research to make sure you are involved. This helps our research reflect your child's health needs and those of the wider community.
