See what stammering research projects you can get involved with. Your experiences and input could help others who stammer.
Firstly, you can attend the online STAMMA Research Arena. This is your chance to give your input into projects that are in an early stage of development.
Or you can take part in current research studies. See the list below. These are by researchers who have asked us to find people to take part. They are not affiliated with STAMMA unless stated. Each request has been assessed by our Research Panel. Read more about the panel further down the page.

About the STAMMA Research Panel
Research into stammering is constantly updating and changing. Researchers regularly contact STAMMA asking us to promote their research projects. We want to make sure that any research we support is well evidenced, meaningful and benefits the stammering community. Our research committee meet throughout the year to review current research into stammering. The committee:
- critically review research about stammering and try to explain the key information or messages as accessibly as possible.
- advise staff on how to measure the impact of STAMMA's campaigns.
- review studies people want us to promote to make sure that these meet our criteria.
- highlight new research which might be of value or interest to our members.
Our committee is made up of trustees, ex-trustees and staff at STAMMA. All members have experience in delivering or reviewing research and many are also people who stammer.
