Take part

On this page we host research projects we are supporting (being carried out by postgraduate students or professionals) and occasionally our own surveys. If you are interested in taking part in research, please click on the links below for more information about each of the studies, including how you can take part. The research projects are listed under a number of categories. Since many of these projects fit into more than one category, some of them are listed multiple times.

If you have personal experience of an eating disorder as a sufferer, carer, or professional, you could receive email updates about research opportunities by joining our research database. To join the database, please download the research questionnaire. You can also choose to join our media contacts database at the same time if you wish.

If you would like to view summary of results, reports and publications resulting from the research which has been advertised here (and via email to our Research contacts), please click here.
