Research // Taking part in research

The Myositis community is very small, most research work, especially in the UK, has to be performed as collaborations at specialised centres. Doctors across disciplines are working together on a variety of projects to try and increase sound research for the Myositis.

If you would like to take part in research or a clinical trial please click below for more details. Only some of these research and clinical trials are open and likely to have criteria for taking part. If you wish to be considered please discuss with your doctor or contact the organisers for suitability.

If you are taking part in research or clinical trial not listed here and believe it to be relevant please let us know and we will consider listing it.
