Online studies

Due to the current coronavirus pandemic, we're very sad not to have our doors open, running all the studies with babies, children and young people that we're used to.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our families for their continued support over the years. As soon as it is safe to do so, we will be inviting you back for studies in our custom built labs. In the meantime, if you would like to help our research, we have EXCITING ONLINE STUDIES you can take part in from the comfort of home, or wherever you are!

This page is updated regularly so please check back - more will come!
