Members and researchers sign up in advance to attend the DEBRA application clinic.  The researchers will send a draft version of an “abstract”, a short description of their research project written in non-scientific terms, before the meeting for the members to read.  These will be marked as confidential and shared only with those members attending the application clinic.

During the application clinic each researcher will have 20 minutes with the members to ask for feedback on the abstract or other elements of their research proposal.  Members can quiz researchers about their proposal and share their lived experience of EB.
