Translational Research Collaborations

Working alongside a number of different Partner organisations, the NIHR has established ready-formed networks of the UK’s leading universities, NHS trusts and research centres in order to carry out early phase translational research and tackle experimental medicine challenges in selected therapeutic themes.

These collaborations are set-up to support and work with the life sciences industry, charities, researchers and other funders and partners.

Collaborating with the NIHR enabled us to meet an important enrollment goal in a rheumatoid arthritis study. We look to leverage clinical and biomaker data from the trial in our efforts to develop the next generation of therapies for individuals living with this debilitating autoimmune disease.

NIHR Statistics Group

Statistics is fundamental to medical research. As a consequence, statisticians are vital partners in NIHR-sponsored research, ensuring that research is of the highest quality. The NIHR Statistics Group has been formed to support NIHR statisticians, share expertise, and facilitate communication and collaboration.
