Research Projects
As many members wish to volunteer for local organisations or as subjects for university research studies we include these opportunities in the twice monthly Bulletin to members. Specific requests from researchers for support from U3A members are listed here:

Would You Like To Take Part In Psychology Research? My name is Chiara Scarampi and I am a researcher at UCL. In my research, I investigate age-related declines in  cognitive processes, so that we can look towards ways in which these challenges might be mitigated and older adults can be helped maintaining their independence and wellbeing throughout the lifespan. I am currently recruiting participants for a study looking at age differences in attention and memory and I was wondering whether it would be possible to advertise it on the Islington U3A newsletter. Attached is a flyer with more information here.

The East End Women's Museum recently launched a public consultation. It is trying to collect people's ideas and input as to what they'd like to see represented in the museum, what sort of facilities it should have etc., and you can complete an online survey here. The museum will have a permanent space in Barking in less than two years. Fani Arampatzidou (who works Monday to Wednesday) is the Volunteer and Outreach coordinator and you can email her here. Part of the consultation is also a participatory art workshop delivered in festivals, schools, community groups etc. and they are trying to cover the seven East London boroughs, Tower Hamlets, Hackney, Newham, Waltham Forest, Redbridge, Barking & Dagenham and Havering.

From U3A National Office: We are often asked to publicise research studies and trials to our members.  Where we do so it is because we believe it may be of interest to you and we are not endorsing or promoting the research study in any way. U3A has not undertaken any checks or due diligence on the relevant department or the study and accepts no liability whatsoever if you decide to agree to participate. If you choose to take part in any study you do so at your own risk and in your own capacity (and not as member of U3A). You should make sure that you understand all the risks associated with any study before you sign up and ensure that you understand the time commitment, any restrictions and possible side effects. You should also ensure that you will be insured as part of the study.
