Research Funded By The Thalidomide Trust

The Trust has commissioned a number of direct research projects into the issues affecting the health and wellbeing of our beneficiaries.

We are grateful for the willingness of the beneficiary group to be actively involved in this research and share their experience of living with Thalidomide damage.
