After substantial interest from the Airwave cohort, we have recently set up the Airwave participant advisory group (APAG) comprising of 8 participants across England, Scotland and Wales. 240 participants have also recently completed a survey as part of Dr Kirsten Bell's research into Airwave study participation and involvement.

We are pleased to be working with the University of Manchester to offer all Airwave participants the opportunity to take an at-home hearing test. We will email the invitations to participants over the next few weeks. If you do not receive an email and believe you are eligible to take part, please contact us at [email protected]

We are pleased to be supporting this study into the effects of oral semaglutide on the build-up of proteins in the brain characterising Alzheimer’s Disease and other cognitive impairments. Invitations to join this research study are being posted to relevant members of the Airwave cohort. 


We're always interested in news items where we're mentioned, and especially when it's a good-news story. This link from Bristol University celebrates a substantial funding award to the UK LLC, to which the Airwave Study is a key contributor.

The Airwave Study has been supporting research into dementia for some years now, and we were pleased to host a discussion event at our White City Campus on June 1st. Leading scientists from Oxford and Imperial College presented their research to members of Great Minds, leading to a final session where attendees asked interesting and thoughtful questions of our speakers.
We would like to tell you about another exciting opportunity for Airwave to contribute to research on the nation’s health. The Study has been invited to take part in the UK Longitudinal Linkage Collaboration (“UK LLC”) which aims to create a national research resource for both scientific discoveries and to support the translation of those into NHS practice.
We are pleased to announce the release of our 2023 newsletter covering recent research, ongoing work and our future plans for the Airwave Health Monitoring Study.

Researchers using the Airwave dataset may wish to begin using Version 2 of the Data Dictionary and its annexes. More annexes and appendices will be published in due course. Please refer to the Researchers menu item on the main page.

We have updated our Privacy Notice for participants, which you can find here.

We are pleased that the Airwave Health Tissue Bank is now listed as a cohort by the Catalogue of Mental Health Measures, an interactive catalogue of mental health and well-being measures in British cohort and longitudinal studies. See our entry here.
