In response to NIHR's framework for resumption of paused non-COVID-19 research, Aisling Burnand MBE CEO of the Association of Medical Research Charities said:  

"Clinical research is not only vital to the development of new treatments and an improved understanding of diseases, for many patients, it is a crucial lifeline. We welcome NIHR’s ‘Restart Research Framework’, which will help get the nation’s clinical research back up and running, reigniting hope in patients across the UK.

“Together we will restore the UK’s world-class clinical research base to ensure the continued delivery of innovative treatments for patients while playing a critical role in the UK’s economic and social recovery.”
