RADAR-CNS Website Launched

RADAR-CNS has launched a new project website: radar-cns.org/. RADAR-CNS (Remote Assessment of Disease and Relapse – Central Nervous System) is a major research programme supported by the Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI).

The project aims to develop new ways of monitoring major depressive disorder, epilepsy, and multiple sclerosis using wearable devices and smartphone technology. The new website provides additional information about the project, including its aims, and how members of the public can get involved.

It also includes a new video about RADAR-CNS, where the project’s co-leaders – Matthew Hotopf from King’s College London, UK, and Vaibhav Narayan from Janssen Pharmaceutica – explain what the project will cover and why it is needed. As RADAR-CNS progresses, the site will be updated with more information about the project, including further details on the project’s work packages, as well as news and events relating to the project.

The RADAR-CNS team are always on the look-out for people to give feedback on their research materials and prototypes. You do not need to be able to use technology such as smartphones and wearable devices - they are interested in all views. If you would like to get involved, visit their website and fill out an online form. They will get back to you to let you know about any suitable opportunities.
