The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) is the research arm of the NHS. The NIHR funds health and care research and translates discoveries into practical products, treatments, devices and procedures. They ensure the NHS is able to support the research of other funders to encourage broader investment in, and economic growth from, health research. They work with charities and the life sciences industry to help patients gain earlier access to breakthrough treatments and they train and develop researchers to keep the nation at the forefront of international research.
