Take part in our research

Are you expecting a baby? Is your baby under 2 years of age? Do you want to take part in infant research?

Each of our studies is designed for babies of a different age. If you register your interest, we will contact you when your child is the right age for one of our studies to invite you for a visit to the Birmingham BabyLab. Our studies are short, fun games and for most families find them interesting and informative.

When we call you, we will explain the study, ask if you would like to take part, and arrange a visit time that suits you. Appointments normally last around an hour and you will be with your child at all times. You are under no obligation to take part just because you have registered with us. You can un-register at any time, without having to give a reason, just by emailing or phoning us.

If you would like to be involved, please fill in the form below and one of our researchers will contact you as soon as we have a study available for your child’s age. If you prefer, you can send us an email at babylab@contacts.bham.ac.uk including the details listed below.

When your child turns 5 your personal and contact information will be marked for permanent deletion, and we will purge information from the database once every quarter year.
