NEUROPROGRESSIVE AND DEMENTIA RESEARCH REGISTER  

Are you affected by Neuroprogressive Conditions?

NRS Neuroprogressive and Dementia Network (NRSND Network) is the leading NHS organisation in Scotland for clinical research into memory impairment, dementia and other neuroprogressive conditions, such as Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease and Motor Neurone disease (MND).

The network runs a portfolio of clinical trials that are investigating the effects of new treatments and questionnaire-based studies that can be competed at home.

Are you interested in taking part in clinical research?

We are asking people that have a neuroprogessive condition and are interested in taking part in research studies to sign up to our Permissions To Contact scheme (PTC scheme).

By providing the network with your contact details, network staff can contact you about research studies that you are suitable for and you can decide whether or not to take part.

Signing up to the PTC Scheme you only agree to be contacted about relevant studies.

For further information please contact the NRSND Network either by email:
