UK Trials & Research Studies

The Lily Foundation are a key link between families and scientists.

Researchers from all around the world work closely with us, telling us about their research plans, asking for our research priorities, and our input into their study design. Because of this relationship, we are able to ensure our Lily Families are aware of relevant study recruitment so they have the first opportunity to be involved if they wish.
