LIVING WITH EB AND WANT TO HAVE A SAY IN THE FUTURE OF EB RESEARCH?
DEBRA International is looking for people living with EB to help assess research projects.
Why we need people living with EB to be involved in assessing research projects.
Up to twice a year DEBRA International invites researchers to submit their exciting ideas for new EB research. We receive research fundingapplications outlining plans to understand more about EB, to develop therapies or to improve quality of life with EB. The researchers mustgive us details of what they plan to do, how they plan to do it and howmuch funding they require.
We have the help of many experienced and dedicated researchers to assessthese funding applications. However, we also want people with EB orcaring for someone with EB to consider the applications, from theperspective of their own expertise - life with EB. If you have EB or area parent or carer to someone with EB and would like to join our panel of'PATIENT REVIEWERS', keep reading...
