About the Associate Principal Investigator Scheme

The Associate Principal Investigator Scheme aims to develop doctors, nurses and other health professionals to become the Principal Investigators (PIs) of the future. This scheme is a six-month in-work training opportunity that provides practical experience for healthcare professionals who are beginning their research careers.

Gain Valuable Research Experience

This scheme offers a chance for individuals who typically do not engage in clinical research during their regular roles to experience working on and delivering a NIHR portfolio trial. Participants will be mentored by an experienced and enthusiastic Local PI.
