The NIHR invests over £1 billion annually into health and public health research.

We ensure that evidence relating to all of our funded research is available to patients, public, health and care professionals and researchers.

We support a wide spectrum of activities including research projects and programmes, training and fellowships, research networks and units, and development and capacity building activities. We believe that the way we work as a funder can help to maximise the potential to improve the health and wealth of the nation.  

There are a number of ways to find out more about our funding and research findings.

Dissemination Centre

Additionally we  provide summaries of health research through the NIHR Dissemination Centre's Discover Portal in the form of Signals, Highlights and Themed Reviews, which aim to help clinicians, commissioners and patients to make evidence-based decisions about which treatments and practices are most effective and provide the best use of resources.
