The department's National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) is currently funding a range of research relating to idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). The NIHR Health Technology Assessment programme is funding a systematic review of evidence on the benefits, harms and costs of treatments for IPF. The review began in May 2012 and is expected to report in mid 2014. Results will be helpful to patients and carers and also to health care professionals treating IPF. In addition, the NIHR is funding three biomedical research fellowships studying IPF.
