Take part in our researchOlder adult participant panel

Aged 60 years or over?

Interested in helping with research into ageing?

We would like to invite generally healthy, independently living older adults to become members of our Older Adult Participant Panel in the Department of Psychological Sciences & Health.

We regularly carry out research into ageing, investigating abilities like memory and attention, and health and wellbeing, across the lifespan. By having a panel of older adult volunteers, our research can progress more efficiently.

Our group has been awarded research grants by funders such as the Economic and Social Research Council, the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, and the Chief Scientist Office. 

To join our panel, you would be asked to provide some basic details about yourself, including your name, contact details, gender, and date of birth. After becoming a member, you would receive invitations from us to participate in individual studies. Most studies require just one visit of about an hour (for in-person studies), or online/postal participation (e.g., surveys). Importantly, you'd be provided with the details about each study when invited, and would never be obliged to participate in any study.


  • generally healthy
  • living independently
  • aged approximately 60 years or over
  • willing to receive invites to participate in our ageing-related research studies


If you have any questions or would like to join our Panel, please contact Dr Louise Nicholls: l.nicholls@strath.ac.uk.
