Research networks

There are a number of research networks across the UK focussed on specific topics. In each it is important to get to know your regional and topic-specific research networks. The networks provide support for study setup with some also supporting Clinical Studies Groups, for the development of studies and to provide advice, or providing funding for the setup of research proposal writing groups.
