We've launched our first research study on the Heart Hive platform.
The study is open to participants who live in the UK, have a diagnosis of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) or dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM), and is being run by researchers at Imperial College London.
Our goal is to further the understanding of DCM and HCM, in particular how genetic and environmental factors interact to cause these conditions and to influence their severity and progression. The study's findings could help develop tailored treatments for patients with cardiomyopathy in the future.
Register with the Heart Hive today or log in to your account, and if you're eligible for the study you'll find the consent form and baseline surveys available in the "My Tasks" section of the portal. Both of these tasks need to be completed to be fully enrolled in the study.
You can also find the Participant Information Sheet in the portal for full details of the project.
