Prioritised support for urgent COVID-19 research

Applications no longer being accepted for studies to be designated as Urgent Public Health

Due to the drop in COVID-19 case numbers and significant progress with the vaccine roll-out, we are no longer accepting applications for studies to be designated as Urgent Public Health (UPH). The submission portal has therefore been closed.

If you wish for your study to be included onto the NIHR CRN Portfolio and to access NIHR CRN Study Support Services, please visit our NIHR CRN Portfolio webpage.

Existing UPH studies will continue to be prioritised in the coming weeks, and new COVID-19 portfolio studies will be supported in line with local priorities and capacity, alongside studies into other disease areas.

If you have any queries, please contact covid19application@nihr.ac.uk
