The Association of Medical Research Charities (AMRC) has today joined the Campaign for Science and Engineering (CaSE) and other leading voices in the UK research sector in a statement outlining our united position on the importance of strong government support for R&D.

Louise Wren, AMRC’s Director of External Affairs, said:

"Organisations from across the research sector are united in calling for strong and sustainable government funding for R&D. This would pay dividends – it would boost economic growth and productivity while unlocking benefits for patients. If the building blocks underpinning UK science are secure, charities can collaborate and invest with confidence.”

Find out more about our vision for the future of R&D in the AMRC Life Sciences Manifesto. Our Election Hub also provides links to resources published by our member charities outlining their key priorities ahead of the next general election.
