A study investigating the impact of exercise on the immune system and cognition is being conducted by the Department of Anatomy and Neuroscience at University College Cork in collaboration with the Department of Physiology and Psychiatry.
People diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis aged between 25 and 45 years, with a sedentary lifestyle can participate in this study.
Your participation will take place over 10 weeks, involving 8 weeks of exercise which will take place at University College Cork (UCC).
If you would like to take part in this study please contact the researcher using the following details: Alison Barry: email@example.com
This research study is funded by the Physiological Society UK and focuses on development of therapies of Multiple Sclerosis
A Health Research Board funded study called ‘Patients’ Preferences for Health’ are looking for volunteers You are invited to participate in a study which will explore “Patients’ Preferences for Health”. In general, people have preferences of being in one state of health over another. This can often be a preference to have good health over bad, or to be in good health for so long and to be in less well health for a shorter period of time. By asking the public in Ireland to make these decisions or trade-offs we can say something about the general preferences of people in Ireland. Preferences gathered in this way are often used to guide choices around decisions in relation to health and using preferences from the general public is deemed to be a fair way of deciding on how to assign healthcare resources. However, it is likely that a person’s experience of being in a health state will alter their preferences compared against those who are only imagining being in that state. As such, this work will examine the differences between patients with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) valuations of health states, and those of the general population to see if this is actually the case. Before you decide whether you would like to be part of this research study, it is important that you understand why we are carrying out this research and what it will involve.

Online questionnaire Fintan Murphy (MSc Physiotherapy) along with Professor Susan Coote (School of Allied Health) of the University of Limerick are inviting you to take part in an online questionnaire examining physical activity behaviour in people with Multiple Sclerosis. This is an international project in collaboration with researchers in the USA and in Germany. Who can participate? People with a diagnosis of MS and aged 18 years or older can participate in this study. We are inviting people with MS who “fit into” all levels of physical activity to take part. So, you do not have to be a physically active person to take part in this study. Aim of research study: The aim of the research is to understand the factors associated with physical activity so that future studies can design and appropriate exercise programmes for people with MS. What do I have to do? If you decide to take part you will complete an online questionnaire consisting of 63 questions. The questionnaire will take 40 minutes (approx) and you can complete it over one or two sittings if desired. Click on the link below for more information and to start the survey
