Our members work with universities in different ways; most fund research projects, some support people and others invest in infrastructure.
- AMRC members are committed to supporting medical and health research in universities
- We work with universities and our members to ensure the Charity Research Support Fund is maintained.
- Our vision for research in the NHS looks at how we can encourage NHS staff to work more closely with their local universities – including through Academic Health Science Centres and Networks and CLAHRCs.
Quality and standards
- All research funded by AMRC members in UK universities is peer reviewed to world-class standards.
- We recommend the Concordat to support research integrity.
- Research funded by AMRC members is eligible for the Charity Research Support Fund (CRSF) if it is awarded through open competition. Our member profiles indicate whether a charity’s funding streams are eligible for CRSF.
