why take part?

We want to find new ways to diagnose and treat the growing numbers of people with diabetes. Clinical trials are a vital way of discovering treatments or technologies that could make a difference to people with diabetes and other health conditions in the future.  Some of these treatment may be new drugs or devices, and other may test older interventions that may be used in different ways. 

To do our studies at DTU and OCDEM, we need healthy volunteers and people with diabetes or other health conditions to take part. Without them, our research simply cannot take place.

By taking part in a clinical study, you are helping us find out if our innovative studies could benefit people with these health conditions.  You could help researchers develop better ways to diagnose or treat diabetes and related conditions, or help establish which treatments work best in particular groups of people.

What is it like to take part?
