The NIHR provides the support, expertise and facilities that the NHS needs to undertake world-leading clinical trials funded by the NIHR, and other public, charity and life sciences industry partners, by funding a range of infrastructure facilities and the Clinical Research Network (CRN). The CRN provides the infrastructure that allows high-quality clinical research funded by the life-sciences industry, including CROs, to be undertaken throughout the NHS. Through NIHR and its partners, and by close collaboration with the life sciences sector and industry, the Government will ensure that the UK remains one of the best places in the world for research, science and innovation.
