If you’re generally healthy, a non-smoker and can spare just 30 minutes of your time, you could help The Dudley Group’s Clinical Research Unit identify some of the causes of heart disease.
We’re on the lookout for 120 healthy participants to support our Research and Development w
ork by taking part in a research study into the UCP1 gene which may cause the development of heart disease.
Participants will need to visit Russells Hall Hospital for a short 30 minute appointment with one of our research investigators for a number of simple assessments (see Participant Information Sheet for more information)
If you meet all of the following criteria, you are eligible to take part in the study:
- generally healthy (not suffer from a chronic disease),
- between 18-59 years old,
- non-smoker (or have quit smoking at least one year ago),
- not pregnant or breastfeeding,

- have no acute illness and/or infection during the last four weeks.
