'The People's Trial' gives a rare insight into science
Sandra and her team are working on a fun experiment to help people understand the importance of evidence - and now, after months of research and thousands of entries, they have revealed the question chosen for their people-powered trial;
Does reading a book in bed make a difference to sleep in comparison to not reading a book in bed
Hmmm now the tough part... which book do I commit to reading for @ThePeoplesTrial - the first public powered, #citizenscience #randomisedtrial - Does reading a book before bed impact on sleep compared with not #readingabookinbed? #beforeifallasleep #trialmethodology @hrbtmrn pic.twitter.com/j8JhVl7g89

NUIG's overall goal is to let people see what happens during the process of a public trial and learn why randomisation is so important.
