Issues of particular interest include proposals that utilise new digital health technologies or investigate their effects.

Applications are encouraged that include geographic populations with high disease burden which have been historically under served by NIHR research activity. Relevant information is available as a guide for applicants (2015 Compendium) and NIHR recruitment data provided by the Clinical Research Network.
