We're pleased to announce that Epilepsy Research Institute UK is the winner of the Aisling Burnand Award 2023. Their video, published earlier this year, announced plans to form the institute in collaboration with founding partners. It was chosen because of the vision of the partnership, the engaging content and the number of partners working together to speed up the delivery of new treatments.

The runners-up were Duchenne UK, for their video on Project HERCULES, and Moorfields Eye Charity for a video about their partnership with the Medical Research Foundation.

We announced the Aisling Burnand Award in October, in honour of our previous CEO, who passed away last year. Aisling left money to AMRC and, as members were always her priority, we wanted to honour her by using this in a way we know she'd approve of - to share with members.

The award will run for the next five years, each year focusing on a priority area for AMRC. This year, following our Festival of Partnerships, we launched a call to AMRC members for submissions of short videos, existing or new, in a competition to find the one that best celebrates charity collaborations.
