Mesothelioma research allows us to develop new tests and treatments with the hope that we can detect mesothelioma sooner and treat it more effectively, prolonging life and improving symptoms.
Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) is the process of actively working with patients, carers and families to design and carry out research that is important to them. It shifts research from the traditional view of ‘research being carried out ON those it impacts’ to the more helpful view of ‘research being carried out WITH and FOR those it impacts’.
You can become involved in all stages of the research process including:
• Prioritisation of studies
• Design and management of studies
• Data collection and analysis
• Dissemination and reporting of findings.
PPI gives YOU a bigger say in the research and research methods that matter to YOU!
We are interested in finding out:
• the type of activities you would like to be involved in
• whether you would like to take part in face to face or virtually
We are aiming to have a first meeting in the next few months to discuss.

Thanks, from The PREDICT-Meso Team
PREDICT-Meso is a CRUK funded Network of international researchers from across the UK, Europe and beyond interested in the study of mesothelioma. Together the teams hope to better understand how mesothelioma develops from its early stages and translate this into more effective diagnosis and treatment for patients.

Your contact info will only be used by the PREDICT-Meso team for the purposes of inviting you to the meeting, and for follow up PPI if you are happy to be further involved. It will not be shared with anyone else. If at any time, you no longer wish to take part please contact PREDICT-Meso@glasgow.ac.uk and we will remove your details from the PPI database.
