The James Lind Alliance (JLA) is a non-profit making initiative bringing patients, carers and clinicians together in JLA Priority Setting Partnerships (PSPs). The JLA PSPs identify and prioritise unanswered questions or evidence uncertainties that they agree are the most important, so that health research funders are aware of the issues that matter most to the people who need to use the research in their everyday lives.

The JLA PSPs
PSPs work to identify which uncertainties really matter and where research would make the most difference.
The Top 10s
What are the top priorities for future research, agreed by patients, carers and health and care professionals working with PSPs?
Making a Difference
JLA PSPs have the potential to impact on the people who take part in them, the profile of the areas they set priorities in, and of course the research that is funded.
The Progressive Pulmonary Fibrosis PSP announced its Top 10 research priorities on 21st June 2022. Action for Pulmonary Fibrosis, the UK charity which initiated the PSP, has advertised a fellowship award, welcoming applications that address one or more of the priorities.
