There are two ways you can get involved with research at WIN. You can be a participant in WIN research (for example, come in for an MRI scan or do other tests as part of a study), or you can help shape decisions about WIN research (e.g. participating in focus groups where you share your opinion about what topics should be researched). You can find listings for both types of opportunities below. Some of the hyperlinks below are to PDF downloads - please contact Hanna Smyth if you need the information in an alternative format.
