CLAHRC Faculty

CLAHRC East Midlands Faculty Membership


Our organisation contains some of the most experienced and talented applied health researchers in the East Midlands. Many of them have international reputations in their chosen field. As one of our key objectives is to increase applied research capacity in the NHS and associated organisations, the creation of an NIHR CLAHRC East Midlands Faculty provides an opportunity for our experience and skills to be utilised across the whole region.
