Communicating well is a key part of getting research funded, carried out, and its findings adopted by others.
Our research communications team provides support to help you share your work with a wide range of audiences, while our university-hospital partnerships support effective publication of your research findings.
Statement and acknowledgement
When communicating your research through research publications, conference posters or presentations or via other means, it is important to include full and accurate attribution to the organisations that fund and support the underpinning research, so they can be reported to funders and beyond.
Future funding, investment, and the academic and clinical reputation of individuals and their institutions, is heavily dependent on such reports, making accurate affiliations and acknowledgements critical. As such, we request that you use the following statements and logos.

The views expressed are those of the author(s) and not necessarily those of the [name of the research funder], the NIHR or the Department of Health and Social Care.
Acknowledgement only (for use within a broader set of acknowledgements/disclaimers)

Supported by the NIHR
If your clinical research is conducted in Leicester and is indirectly funded or supported by the NIHR CRF, NIHR Leicester Biomedical Research Centre (BRC), NIHR Clinical Research Network (CRN) East Midlands, or other NIHR organisations, we encourage you to use the ‘Supported by NIHR’ logo on your communications materials.
This logo is available in various formats such as image file (.jpg and .png) and vector file (.eps) and can be downloaded here.
