The goal of this network is to improve research engagement and attainment amongst medical students and doctors of African and Caribbean heritage. Not only would this increase black representation in medical research, it could also improve patient outcomes, including those from deprived populations and ethnic minorities. The Melanin Medics Research Network is open to all medical students and doctors regardless of their ethnicity or race.

REMED-UK study is a prospective, national, multi-centre study that will utilise an online questionnaire.

2. To understand perceptions of research, motivation for, and the barriers to research engagement and attainment amongst medical students in the UK.
