National brain tumour research funding needs to increase to £35 million a year
AMRC report “Without Charities” published
A report published today by the Association of Medical Research Charities (AMRC) highlights just a few of the vital contributions AMRC charities make to the UK’s life sciences.
“Without Charities” makes the case for the Treasury to provide financial support for charity in order to ensure the UK remains a world-leader in research.
It highlights many of the vital contributions AMRC charities make to the UK’s life sciences sector: from establishing crucial infrastructure, to fostering research talent, to supporting underfunded health areas.
This report is published in anticipation of the upcoming Comprehensive Spending Review this autumn, helping to support the AMRC’s claim to HM Treasury that if charity research is not protected through the Life Sciences-Charity Partnership Fund, the UK’s status as a world-leader in research and innovation will be at risk.
As a fully supportive member of the AMRC, Brain Tumour Research applauds the contents of this report, is concerned by the findings and is happy to add our voice to the campaigning call.
