  • Search for cases
  • Designing a study/survey

  • Advice on study process and design
  • Liaising with Core Registry and e-REC users on behalf of the study investigators
  • Developing study specific modules

Prospective investigators should contact the office before embarking on, developing, or seeking funding for the study so that the costs of this proposed work can be clarified.
