70 discoveries

 

To tie in with the NHS’s 70th birthday, our I Am Research campaign is celebrating how research has improved health and care over the past 70 years and how NIHR research is helping to shape the future.

 

We’re showcasing 70 discoveries that have transformed the way the NHS works and outcomes for patients, drawn from the suggestions of experts from across the NIHR.

 

We’ll share one discovery a day on our Twitter account @OfficialNIHR and here on our campaign page. Let us know your views on the most important research discovery of the past 70 years on social media using the hashtags #IAmResearch, #NHS70 and #70discoveries.
