NIHR's mission is to improve the health and wealth of the nation through research. We deliver against this mission through five strategic workstreams.
The NIHR is:
funding, supporting and delivering high quality research that benefits the NHS, public health and social care
- engaging and involving patients and the public in order to improve the reach, quality and impact of research
attracting training and supporting the best researchers to tackle the complex health and care challenges of the future
investing in world-class infrastructure and a skilled delivery workforce to translate discoveries into improved treatments and services
partnering with other public funders, charities and industry to maximise the value of research to patients and the economy
