The last few years have demonstrated the enormous power of data to advance medical knowledge and deliver radical improvements to people’s lives. Treatments, vaccines and life-saving policies have all been delivered in record time thanks to large-scale data, advanced analytics and innovative developments in data governance.  

But these benefits must not be limited to COVID-19. They must extend to people living with other conditions such as mental illness, cancer, heart disease and diabetes. And they must be inclusive of and accessible to the entire global population. 

Health Data Research UK’s annual scientific conference will be a free one-day, hybrid event to celebrate this progress and allow people to come together and continue to build momentum in the health data research revolution.

Opportunities

The BHF has established a Healthcare Innovation Fund to support the testing and evaluation of innovative approaches to the delivery of improved services for patients with cardiovascular disease.

The fund will operate through Expressions of Interest (EoI) in the first instance. The proposals outlined in the EoIs can range in scale of maturity, from a problem statement that is yet to be defined through to ideas and solutions that are ready to be tested.

Round one will close at 9am on 5 December 2022. More information

UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) has now opened applications for Driver Projects to inform the design of cross-council trusted research environments (TREs) as part of the DARE UK (Data and Analytics Research Environments UK) programme. The aim of these short duration driver projects will be to take a leading role in informing the design of specific components of what will be a UK-wide, interoperable network of TREs for sensitive data research at scale for public good. Closing date: 14th December 2022

The NIHR Research Professorships aim to fund research leaders of the future to promote effective translation of research and to strengthen health, public health and care research leadership at the highest academic levels.

The scheme is open to all professions and all Higher Education Institutions (HEI), NHS organisations, or other providers of health, public health and/or care services based in England, to nominate health, public health and social care researchers and methodologists with an outstanding research record of clinical and applied health research and its effective translation for improved health. The current round closes on the 1st of December 2022

The BHF CRC offer UK researchers the opportunity to consult with a leading CTU to address questions in, and refine the design of, research projects. Eligible projects must be towards the later stages of development (rather than conceptual) and be of sufficient scale or merit that they will attract the support of one of our established Research Groups. Smaller scale studies or those in early-stage development are not applicable for this initiative and should be directed towards the NIHR Research Design Service. Researchers can choose the CTU they would like to work with from the list of our partnered CTUs.
