NIHR Friday: CLAHRCs Selection Panel announced plus NIHR Journals Library opens

I was just going to tweet this but since it is in a downloadable pdf and not actually on the face of NIHR’s website, I thought it would be helpful to post it – the membership of the Collaboration in Leadership for Applied Health Research and Care (CLAHRC) Selection Panel:

Professor Huw Davies (Chair) Co-Head of School, School of Management, University of St Andrews,Scotland, UK
Mr Simon Denegri National Director for Public Participation and Engagement in Research, National Institute for Health Research and Chair, INVOLVE, London, UK
Professor Cy Frank Faculty of Medicine University of Calgary, Calgary, Canada
Professor John Gabbay Emeritus Professor of Public Health, University of Southampton, Southampton, UK
Professor Gillian Leng CBE Deputy Chief Executive at NICE and Honorary Senior Lecturer at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, London, UK
Professor Steven Lewis President Access Consulting Ltd, Saskatchewan, Canada Adjunct Professor of Health Policy at Simon Fraser University, British Columbia, Canada.
Professor Tom Walley CBE Director, NIHR Evaluation, Trials and Studies, Director of the HTA Programme, University of Liverpool, Liverpool, UK

The original details for the CLAHRC competition can be found here.

And in other news this week the NIHR has launched its own ‘Journals Library.‘  I quote from the website:

“The NIHR has launched a new Journals Library, providing full publication and open access to an extensive body of health research. It comprises a suite of five programme-specific journal series, published online, which are fully searchable and provide a comprehensive record of work funded by these NIHR programmes. Building on the success of the existing Health Technology Assessment journal, the library will give accessible full publication of  findings of the research commissioned by these programmes and will provide an important permanent and comprehensive record of the work which has been funded.”

The official launch is on 20th June and I shall hold back a little on what this means for patients until I have spoken at the event.  It is very exciting and I am pleased NIHR continues to lead on practical action to open up research outcomes to everyone.
