Research Volunteers

Researchers who are investigating epilepsy rely on people with epilepsy to volunteer their time to participate in the studies. Taking part in a research study is generally not time consuming. Depending on the study, it may mean completing questionnaires, taking part in a phone interview or donating a blood sample.

Below is a list of studies that are currently looking for volunteers. Please take a look and get in touch with the researchers if you meet their criteria.

If you are a researcher looking for study participants, please email us at info@epilepsy.ie with details.
