What is One NIHR?

As the research arm of the NHS, more than 25,000 people are engaged in leading our research or belong to our facilities, networks or coordinating centres. All of whom work towards improving the health and wealth of the nation through research as One NIHR.

Although we are geographically spread across England and based in varying locations from universities and hospital trusts to labs and specialist units we are all One NIHR.

The NIHR funds many different roles across the whole research pathway. We fund training for healthcare professionals so they can pursue their research ideas, the investigators that lead on research projects and the research nurses on the ground that deliver research - and just about everyone in between! 

No matter who you are, where you work or what you do - if you are funded by or otherwise part of the NIHR, you are an invaluable asset to the work we do.

One NIHR promotes and celebrates the people funded by, supported by and working for the NIHR, and helps them to promote and celebrate the NIHR too.

Please become ambassadors.
I am NIHR, you are NIHR, we are NIHR.

I Am Research

Every year, we promote International Clinical Trials Day on 20 May - the day James Lind started the first trial on scurvy.

This is a special day to celebrate clinical research all over the world, and highlight the important impact research has had on medicine to date.

For the NIHR, International Clinical Trials Day is an opportunity to showcase the diversity of health and social care research, how you can get involved and the benefits it brings to patients and the public.

2017 is a particularly exciting year, because we’re launching a new national campaign: I Am Research.
