Introducing Health Research in Action

This year’s Health Research in Action highlights some of the many notable impacts and outcomes of the Health Research Board's work during 2020, from a timeline of our huge contribution to Ireland’s efforts to combat COVID-19, to the other important research we continued alongside this. Included are 22 success stories of wide-ranging health and social care research across four themes, all of which are featured individually on this page. You can also download the full publication at the link above, or at the bottom of this page. 


Thanks to science writer Dr Claire O’Connell and our valued HRB and HRB-funded researchers for helping us compile this year's Health Research in Action. Sincere acknowledgement also to the public, patients and carers, as well as the health and social care professionals, that make so much of our work possible.
