SURVEY RE CLINICAL COLLABORATION AND NATIONAL BIOBANK FOR NEUROLOGICAL DISORDERS

Dr. FitzGerald, a recent representative of Irish Neuroscientists on the Board of Directors of the Irish Institute of Clinical Neuroscience (IICN) and a principal investigator based at NUIG, has compiled a survey aimed at exploring the following topics:

 

  • Scope for closer collaboration between Irish neuroscientists and neurologists or other clinicians who work with individuals who suffer       from neurological disorders
  • Possible barriers to working more closely with neuroscientists
  • Potential for banking/sharing of body fluid and tissue samples and clinical data from Irish people suffering from all categories of neurological        disorders
  • Willingness on the part of neuroscientists to participate in applications to Irish/European/global calls for funding to support collaborative             translational research

 

A similar survey was circulated to members of the Irish Institute for Clinical Neuroscience (IICN) in May this year. The president of Neuroscience Ireland has approved circulation of this survey.  Answers to all questions will be considered confidential and information gathered will be reported, in the first instance, to the Council of Neuroscience Ireland.  Survey information may also be passed on to members of the IICN.

There are a total of 19 questions, which are mostly multiple choice type. The survey should take no longer than 15 minutes to complete.  Your views will be extremely important in gathering momentum for this initiative and we would appreciate your cooperation and input.  The questions can be found by clicking on the link below:

Thank you!
