In response to Government's plans for R&D budget Nicola Perrin, Chief Executive of the Association of Medical Research Charities said:

“Sustained investment is so important for research which, by its very nature, takes time. What we think of as overnight cures come from years of previous hard work, effort and funding.

"This Government commitment is a positive signal about the importance of R&D to the UK’s economy.

"Medical research charities, industry and the public sector are all vital cogs in the complicated network of research funding. Let’s keep them strong and able to deliver what we all need to stay as healthy as possible for as long as possible.”
