About us Who we are The Association of Medical Research Charities (AMRC) is a membership organisation dedicated to supporting medical research charities in saving and improving lives through research and innovation. We ensure our member charities fund the best research by developing guides, providing training, and carrying out an audit of their funding processes. We unite and champion the sector, helping to drive positive change in the research and health landscape. Our mission The AMRC brings together and supports health and medical charities to produce high-quality research. We do this by influencing policy and research, and highlighting the sector’s contribution to patient and public health. Our strategy As part of our 2020-25 strategic plan, we consulted with members and developed five strategic objectives. These are to: To champion the unique voice of the medical research charity sector by informing and educating internal and external stakeholders across the changing life sciences and digital health landscape. To influence the research and health funding landscape to ensure that medical research charities investment is leveraged efficiently for patient impact. To foster and enable better collaboration to address the needs of patients by working with industry, academia, NHS, regulators, our members and other stakeholders. To maximise the potential for research and innovation in the NHS to ensure the investment from medical research charities has the greatest impact for patients. To drive forward the quality future focused member offering which addresses changing needs and enhances AMRC’s delivery capability.
