Search our evidence
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, the public, health and care professionals, and researchers.
We support a wide spectrum of activities including research projects and programmes, training and career development, research networks and units, and capacity building activities. We believe that the way we work as a funder can help to maximise our potential to improve the health and wealth of the nation through research.
There are a number of ways to find out more about our funding and research findings.
NIHR Funding and Awards
You can search and analyse information on NIHR-supported activity in health and care research, including expenditure and research findings, through our Funding and Awards website.
NIHR Journals Library
We are the first health research funder to publish comprehensive accounts of its research within its own publicly and permanently available journals. The NIHR Journals Library has five open access, peer-reviewed journals on a range of health research areas.
NIHR Evidence publishes high quality summaries of findings from research funded by the NIHR and other organisations, making health and care research informative, accessible, relevant and ready for use. You can search NIHR Evidence for summaries of individual pieces of research (Alerts) or summaries of several pieces of research on the same topic (Collections and Themed Reviews).
NIHR Open Data
We publish detailed data about our funding of health and care research using an open platform called NIHR Open Data. Anyone can view and use the data under the terms of the open licence. For information on accessing research datasets, please see the NIHR policy on data sharing.
