The Co-Lead programme is funded by the Health Research Board (Research Leader Awards 2015, Grant Reference Number RL-2015-1588) and the Health Service Executive.

The Health Research Board (HRB) is a statutory agency under the aegis of the Department of Health, and is the lead agency in Ireland responsible for supporting and funding health research, information and evidence. The HRB supports excellent research that improves people’s health, patient care and health service delivery.

The HRB aims to ensure that new knowledge is created and then used in policy and practice, and in doing so supports health system innovation and creates new enterprise opportunities.
