Each year AMRC collects detailed research spend and grants portfolio data from all member charities. This valuable pool of data is used to convey the footprint of the sector to the public and policy makers.
AMRC member charities spent £1.6bn on medical and health research in the UK in 2016. That accounts for 45% of all publicly-funded medical research in the UK.

AMRC aggregates data from all our members and publishes reports and infographics to demonstrate the value of the sector. We also create spotlight reports to highlight the work that medical research charities are doing in certain areas, drawing from the research expenditure, grants portfolio, and impact data that our members provide to us each year. follow the links below to view these reports.
