Finding out what makes researchers tick

Posted on: 21/02/2018

UK-based Biomedical researchers are invited to complete an online survey called ‘Human samples in UK biomedical research’.

The UK Clinical Research Collaboration Tissue Directory and Coordination Centre (UKCRC TDCC) are collecting data to help researchers use human tissue samples. If your work includes this area, please respond to the survey.

“Research Survey

“UK-based Biomedical researchers are invited to complete an online survey called¬†‚ÄòHuman samples in UK biomedical research‚Äô. We want to understand when human samples are used, what the motivations are for using them and whether there are any barriers to accessing or using human samples in the UK currently.

“Researcher Focus Groups

“The results of the survey will help us identify key groups of researchers that use human tissue in their work. We may then invite willing participants to participate in a focus group. The aim of the groups will be to get further feedback on the survey results by dissecting motivations and what would lead to changes in behaviour. Participants will also be asked to test drive the UKCRC Tissue Directory and provide direct feedback on what does, and doesn‚Äôt, work.

“All the results of the work will be published following completion and will directly influence the development of the resource. If you are interested in taking part, or finding out more about our work please¬†browse our website¬†or¬†get in touch with us.”

The closing date for survey submissions is the 18th March.
