Healthy women needed for pain research

We are inviting healthy women to take part in a research study to improve our understanding of the brain structure and function in relation to pain.

Participants will be asked to have an MRI brain scan, complete a questionnaire and give a blood and saliva sample.

Who are we looking for?

Women aged between 18-50 years with no previous chronic pain or painful periods.  

*Participants will be reimbursed for their time.

For more information, please contact Danielle Hewitt: danielle.hewitt@obs-gyn.ox.ac.uk or 01865 221120.
