Eating Disorders Research

Further research is essential to helping us end the pain and suffering of eating disorders. You can help us and other researchers continue to learn more about these complex mental illnesses by taking part in research projects.

If you have personal experience of an eating disorder as a sufferer, carer, or professional, and you are interested in participating in research, please follow us on social media to receive a notification whenever a new research opportunity becomes available.

Please note: Some people can find participating in research to be a triggering experience. If you are at all concerned about this, please make sure to read each study's information sheet carefully and to get in contact with the researcher to ask them any questions you might have about participation. Also, please feel free to discuss any concerns with others close to you and perhaps a healthcare professional if you are currently receiving treatment, before deciding whether to take part. Your health and well being should be the top priority.
