Eight people have been named National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) Senior Investigators in recognition of their “outstanding contribution to clinical and applied health and social care research”.
The successful candidates were all prominent researchers in the NIHR Oxford Biomedical Research Centre and the NIHR Oxford Health Biomedical Research Centre. The two institutions work in cooperation with each other, with the Oxford BRC focusing on a broad range of physical conditions, and the Oxford Health BRC concentrating on mental health and dementia.
Two other professors had their NIHR Senior Investigator awards renewed, while eight more who have previously held awards have now been designated Emeritus NIHR Senior Investigators.
