NIHR Applied Research Collaboration Yorkshire and Humber
The NIHR Applied Research Collaboration (ARC) Yorkshire and Humber is an important programme of applied research, hosted within Bradford Institute for Health Research, and delivered through a partnership of organisations, including NHS organisations, Local Authorities, universities, third sector organisations and industry.
NIHR ARC supports people-powered research that aims to improve health and well-being for our communities. Our themes of healthy childhood, mental health, older people and urgent care are the priorities that have been identified by our NHS partners and the public and will ensure our region will benefit from cutting-edge innovation. The ARC will ensure our NHS and social services are able to improve effectiveness and impact to benefit our patients and their families. Board Members
