About us

We are the national membership organisation of leading medical and health research charities

We help our members to meet their charitable objects by interpreting and influencing the regulatory, policy and research environments, and connecting members to encourage collaboration and share learning. Our vision is charities delivering high quality research to improve health and wellbeing for all.

AMRC members support over one third of all publicly-funded medical research in the UK. Our members invested over £1.3 billion in health research in the UK in 2013. Many of these charities exist because the public choose to donate money to support research to develop new treatments and cures.
