The NIHR supports research being delivered through 30 specialty therapy areas. Each specialty is made up of expert clinical leaders and practitioners who work at both national and local levels to ensure that studies are delivered successfully and to promote awareness of research opportunities for participants to take part in.

The specialty groups also support the dialogue between the life sciences industry and charities to ensure the pipeline of research studies and to facilitate the involvement of participants to make research more effective. Visit the main NIHR website to find out what is happening nationally in the different specialties.

Specialty Leads develop clinical activity within a specified specialty (ie Metabolic and Endocrine, Diabetes etc), encouraging local clinicians to participate in NIHR Clinical Research Network Portfolio studies, building upon local clinical strengths and research interests and priorities. In particular, the Specialty Lead assists the Research Delivery Manager with the clinical elements of study delivery and the development of the local infrastructure to support research studies.

Specialty Leads engage with the National Specialty Group and contribute to national strategies and initiatives to support the successful delivery of the specialty’s national objectives and act as the key link between the national networks of specialty-specific expertise and the CRN NENC.

A full list of our specialty leads contact details can be found on the CRN NENC Intranet.
