  8. 8. Basic Research The role of National Institute for Social Care & Health Research (NISCHR) in the Innovation Pathway NISCHR supports innovation primarily through the provision of funding to undertake evaluations in NHS, social care and public health research. Our role is to develop research evidence and encourage its uptake and use. The chart shows research programmes and initiatives that fit into the 'innovation pathway’ (please note that the chart is not a comprehensive representation of all NISCHR initiatives and does not show formal relationships between programmes and organisations). This pathway covers the full range of interventions - pharmaceuticals, biologicals, biotechnologies, procedures, therapies, practices, service design and developments - for the full range of health/social care and health care delivery - prevention, detection, diagnosis, prognosis, treatment, care. NISCHR also provides funding to support an infrastructure that facilitates the delivery of non- commercial and commercial research, informatics and career development opportunities.
