I was contacted this morning by email by another doctor at the same university as the other one I've been liaising with.
If you'd like to take part in the research please could you email her whereupon she will respond back with a couple of documents for you to read and she will also organise a Zoom call if you'd like to take part in the study. Her details are (it was a personal email just to me):
I understand you recently contacted my colleague, Dr. Rabia Lalani, for involvement in an IBS research study.
I work in the same institute as Dr. Rabia Lalani and have been advised that you may be interested in participating in further IBS research.
The current study assess the possible causes of IBS and IBS related symptoms in different groups of patients with IBS (Please see information sheet for more details).
The study consists of:
1.A video call to go through our inclusion/exclusion criteria (conducted via zoom)
2.A series of online questionnaires.
I have attached two participant information sheets to this email.
1.If you suffer with IBS, constipation type, please open the document named ‘IBS with constipation symptoms’
2.If you suffer with IBS, diarrhoea, or mixed bowel habit , please open the document named ‘IBS with mixed symptoms’
If this study is of interest to you and you would like to participate please respond to this email with a convenient date and time for a zoom call.
If you would like further information about this study before making a decision, please feel free to respond to this email or call me on 07506002972 (Monday – Friday, 9am – 5pm).

Anisa will send the documents to you once you have responded. She did say that it would be better to email her rather than phone.
Best of luck if you take part.
