The key to powerful research

Welcome to the RIC! Are you conducting scientific research into Long Covid? We make it easy to involve people with Long Covid in your research and help ensure your study is relevant, robust, addresses patient priorities for research and keeps the patient voice at the centre.

Whether you want to understand more about patient involvement in research in general, or you want input from people with Long Covid for your research study, we can help.

Our research advisers are all people with Long Covid who are trained in Patient Involvement in Research. They have practical experience of being involved in numerous studies and are knowledgeable about the global research landscape in Long Covid.
