The Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI) wants to hear from you

Applications are open for a ‘pool of patient experts’, which will strengthen the role and voice of those with diseases and conditions addressed by IMI research. This will introduce the perspectives of those potentially affected by research earlier in the process, for example by including them in identification of research areas and evaluation of proposals.

Applicants must have a chronic/lifelong illness or condition (or be a family member or carer of such) and a specific interest in one of the IMI’s Strategic Research Agenda areas (which includes autism). They must have a working knowledge of English and be a resident of an EU Member State, a country associated with the EU’s research programme Horizon 2020, or the WHO European Region.

Applications close on 16th July and full details can be found on the IMI website.
