Presentation Details (date, conference, etc.)

On Thursday February 29, 2024, 11:30-1:30pm ET leaders from the NIHR AIM Programme will present to the NIH Bridge2AI Consortium.  The webinar will introduce the AIM Program goals and components associated with the People, Ethics and Data pillars of Bridge2AI.


Background on NIHR's AIM Programme

The NIHR has awarded £23 million to new research that will use advanced data science and artificial intelligence (AI) methods to identify and understand clusters of multiple long-term conditions (MLTCs) and develop ways to prevent and treat them. 

The awards have been funded under the Artificial Intelligence for Multiple Long-Term Conditions (AIM) Programme over 2 waves of funding. The first wave has invested nearly £12 million into three Research Collaborations, nine Development Awards and a Research Support Facility. The second wave has invested around £10 million in four additional Research Collaborations, primarily stemming from previously funded Development Awards.

Wave 1 Awards:

Wave 2 Awards:

Other NIHR investments stemming from AIM Programme Development Awards:

  • Inflammation, nutrition, and the evolution of multiple long term conditions – an AI-based analysis of intersectionality in longitudinal health data (the InflAIM project)
Presentation by Dr. Mario Moroso, NIHR, UK to the Bridge2AI WG on May 17, 2023
  • Slide 16 outlines some early thoughts from NIHR AIM award holders with regards to opportunities for collaborations.
  • Slide 17 introduces other investments the NIHR has made on AI, particularly in the context of our Invention for Innovation Programme.
  • Slide 18  outlines specific challenge areas (e.g. cancer, mental health, respiratory), where the NIHR has made significant investments and that could offer exciting opportunities for AI applications. We are keen to explore synergies in those areas.
