We’re pleased to announce that AMRC is now an EDIS member! EDIS aims to build a powerful, connected and coordinated movement to advance Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in Science and Health.

Aisling Burnand, Chief Executive, AMRC commented: “It is vital that we reflect diverse voices in the medical research charity workforce. As research funders, medical research charities can play an important role by clarifying the standards they require others to adhere to when awarding grants. What EDIS has started is long overdue and therefore timely.”

EDIS is in a unique position, having been founded by a publicly funded research institute (The Francis Crick Institute), an independent funding charity (Wellcome) and a commercial partner (GlaxoSmithKline). EDIS will continue to draw together organisations across the science and health field to develop a coalition with power to influence and drive evidence-based change.
