Researchers share stories for NIHR campaign

Clinical academics working on studies funded by ARC East Midlands have spoken of the reasons behind their moves into research to mark an NIHR campaign.

They have shared their stories for Your Path in Research 2021 which is aimed at encouraging healthcare professionals to become more engaged in research.

Read the stories from our researchers:

As well as encouraging researchers to engage more with research and supporting the ever-improving care the NHS can provide to patients, the campaign is also promoting the benefits of research.

The NIHR Your Path in Research webpage states: “Research happens every day, right across all health and care services – from the community to acute trusts. The COVID-19 pandemic has shown just how important research is.  

“Research is critical to help discover which interventions work better for patients and ensures existing treatments are used in the best possible ways. It helps to find answers, fill gaps in knowledge and ensure best practice.”
