  • We are always looking for volunteers to help us with our research.
  • Our research includes investigations to increase our understanding of skin and skin disease, and clinical trials to test new treatments.
  • There are no payments made to patients for studies involving treatments, but in most cases, patients can claim travel expenses.
  • We regularly require volunteers for basic skin studies.
  • 'Healthy' volunteers must have skin with no underlying disease or disorder (for example, eczema or psoriasis) and be generally in good health.
  • Payments made volunteers depend upon the rigors of the study and vary from £10 for simple questionnaires to over £100 for complex studies that involve taking biopsies.

Members of our database are notified when we begin studies that may be of interest to them. It is now possible to join our database online by completing a short questionnaire.
