Between 2008 and 2013 the Institute hosted the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) CLAHRC NDL (Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care - Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and Lincolnshire) prior to the emergence in 2013 of the new CLAHRC East Midlands.
CLAHRC East Midlands has five core research themes: preventing chronic disease, managing chronic disease, enhancing mental health, caring for older people and stroke survivors and implementing evidence and improvement.
The CLAHRC - one of 13 across the country funded by the NIHR with matched funding from local partners - will create an international centre of excellence to deliver a large volume of high-quality applied health research of local and national relevance. It will work with academic, industry, NHS, third sector and patient and public partners to build strength and capacity for world-class research within the East Midlands. Most importantly, CLAHRC EM will significantly contribute to improving patient care and ensure "Healthier living for longer" for people with long term conditions, their families and carers in the East Midlands.
