Public and Patient Involvement (PPI) Panel

What is public and patient involvement (PPI)?
Patient and public involvement (PPI) in research is where research is “being carried out ‘with’ members of the public” not just “‘to’ or ‘for’ them”. The slogan “nothing about us without us” is another way of describing PPI. By having a PPI group we can be sure that our research is meeting your needs and what we are planning is appropriate.


We welcome interest from people with multiple sclerosis, people with dementia and people who support them who have an interest in contributing to, shaping, and/or leading on research projects. 

If you would like to talk anything through or get more information please contact Dr Sinéad Hynes at
