A brief overview of the NIHR

This provides a great introduction to the NIHR for new members.

All NIHR Academy members should notify our communications team of any upcoming publications, press activity or events.

Academy researchers are expected to submit data on the impact of their work on an annual basis and for a number of years following the end of their award. If you’re using Researchfish to report on your research, you can find useful information to aid your submission. For further information, please visit our reporting impact page.

The NIHR Academy Clinical Trials Guide has been developed for members in the early stages of their careers. It holds information on how to go about developing and leading a clinical trial.

Through collaboration with experts across the NIHR and conversations with existing members we have put together a list of questions and answers that we hope you will find useful, as well a list of useful links to resources for further information.

Anyone proposing to include a clinical trial, feasibility study or research relevant to clinical trials in a research training award application is strongly advised to read this additional guidance before completing an application.
