About the study

The aim of OxSTEP is to investigate how a medication commonly used to reduce cholesterol changes the way our brain processes certain kinds of information.

Who can take part?

Healthy volunteers aged 30 to 60 years who have been experiencing feelings of social isolation.

 
Why take part as a healthy volunteer?

Participation in research, by people just like you, has helped provide valuable knowledge to help people live healthier and better lives now and in the future.

Clinical research helps improve health and social care provided by the NHS and others.  It also helps advance medicine to find new cures and better treatments for future generations. This treatment could be a medicine, a vaccine, surgery, radiotherapy, physical and psychological therapies and methods of diagnosing disease.

 

Why research is important
Every minute in the UK, someone is diagnosed with a disease or a condition. The treatment and support they will receive will, at some point, have been informed by research.
