[June 25th Webinar Recording] Can We Sustain World-Leading Research with Charities Under Threat?

In the UK charities play a key role in medical research but the current coronavirus pandemic is having a huge financial impact on UK medical research spend. Charities are expecting a £310 million shortfall in research spend for 2020/2021.  With reduced funding for researchers, NHS staff, patient communities, and life-saving research what steps are charities taking to position themselves in the new research landscape? 

In this webinar Jocelyn LeBlanc from the AMRC (Association of Medical Research Charities), Richard Francis from the Stroke Association, and Sanjay Thakrar from Marie Curie discuss the importance and impact of charities in medical research and the threat that COVID19 is posing for future research.
