The Research Institute for the care of older people based at the RUH in Bath is your local way to get involved in research. If you would like to take part in research see the opportunities below:
RICE is always looking for participants to take part in our research.
Clinical Trials Research at RICE
If you have a diagnosis of dementia or Mild Cognitive Impairment you may be eligible to take part in one of our clinical trials exploring new drug therapies for treating dementia and memory decline.
Neuropsychology Research at RICE
If you have a diagnosis of dementia we would also welcome your participation in one of our neuropsychology research projects. Please see the Neuropsychology Research section for an overview of some our research themes and current projects. Very often it is possible for individuals to be involved in both our clinical trials and neuropsychological research studies.
If you do not have memory problems, or dementia, but wish to contribute towards our research we have a number of psychology studies running which would be suitable for you. Much of our neuropsychology research focuses on developing psychology assessments which are sensitive to the memory and cognitive changes associated with dementia, for these tests to be useful we need to understand how people without memory problems perform on these assessments as well. We welcome participation into these studies on a “one-off” basis.
