In response to the publication of the Academy of Medical Science's Future-proofing UK Health Research: a people-centred, coordinated approach report, Nicola Perrin, CEO of the Association of Medical Research Charities (AMRC) said:

"Health research is not a one-off task. It is a long-term endeavour by many players and must be sustainable. This report from the Academy of Medical Sciences examining the challenges to that sustainability couldn’t be more timely or more needed. All those involved, including medical research charities, play a vital role in creating and maintaining health research sustainability.

"We welcome the spotlight being shone on collective responsibility, long-term funding, innovative models of partnerships and cross-sector mobility to attract diverse talent. We look forward to playing our part in the next steps."
