NIHR in North East and North Cumbria
The NIHR funds a range of health and social care research with the aim of improving people’s health and promoting the economy. We collaborate with a variety of organisations in the region who are also funded by the NIHR. These organisations can support research at the invention, evaluation, adoption and diffusion phases.
