HTA funding and The Yorkshire Health Study

The NIHR HTA currently are wanting to fund research to evaluate clinical and public health interventions using efficient designs – including exploitation of existing cohorts, simple randomised trials allowing rapid recruitment and follow-up.

The innovative Yorkshire Health Study cohort of 22,000 ‘research ready’ adults is designed to facilitate rapid and efficient recruitment to randomised trials using the cmRCT design
