Pre-eclampsia Research Portal

Welcome to the new Research Portal.

One of the key roles of APEC is to be the patient voice in world class research. It is for anyone interested in the research projects on pre-eclampsia and anyone who would like our support with their research.

APEC involvement – register interest

If you have a project you are looking for APEC to support, please do contact us using the below form. We will then arrange a meeting to discuss  your needs and how we can support you.

Could you be the Patient Voice in Research Projects?

We are asking for volunteers who have lived experience of pre-eclampsia, to form a Patient Participation Group. We might ask you to be involved on a long term project, review documents, or give thoughts on a proposal. There is no specific commitment.
