Over 30 years ago a small, diverse group of medical research charities formed the Association of Medical Research Charities (AMRC) to unite the sector and provide it with a leading voice. Since then our membership has grown to over 150 charities and we continue to support them in saving and improving lives through research and innovation.
We assess our member charities' research funding processes when they apply for membership and carry out a full audit every five years, to ensure they fund the best research. We also produce guides and provide training to help our member charities maximise their impact.
We run meetings, networks and events that connect member charities and key stakeholders, to share learning and foster collaborations that deliver benefits to patients sooner.
We submit consultation responses, meet with policy-makers, publish position statements, and develop infographics and reports, to communicate our member charities' value and enable them to drive positive change.
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.
