What can AMRC members do to ensure the EU Data Protection Regulation does not stop valuable health research?

MEPs have agreed changes to the EU Data Protection Regulation which could hinder health research across Europe. But this isn't the end of the process; the Regulation will now be discussed by MEPs, the Council and Commission offering further opportunities to make changes.

The medical research charity sector is seeking to have the right conversations about patient data: this is why you should join us

Care.Data. Aren’t those two words designed to send a shiver down the spine? Two words that can shut down any conversation about sharing patient data. Right. Right?!


What’s it worth? Estimating the impact of biomedical research

Did you know that for every pound invested in medical research, there is an annual return of 25p every year, forever?

It can be challenging to show the impact of research for patients and our economy, so we teamed up with a group of research funders as committed to demonstrating the value of medical research as we are. Together with the Academy of Medical Sciences, the Department of Health, the Medical Research Council, and Wellcome we commissioned a study that estimated the returns on public and charitable investment for musculoskeletal research in the UK.
