What we fund

Our impact

The full, long-term impact of our funding will only really be understood in years to come, based on the outcomes of the research that we have supported.

We can see what impact we’ve made now in terms of the funding that we have put into research projects and the research scientists we have helped to support.

Some highlights from recent years:

  • In 2016/17 we funded 55 new research projects and researchers, investing £4.2m in new research that will improve human health.
  • In 2015/16 we provided substantial support to develop the research careers of ten emerging research leaders as well as researchers at earlier career stages (those young scientists working on their PhD or in the early postdoctoral period) thanks to funds restricted by our donors. We used these restricted funds to train 17 bright, emerging researchers who we hope will go on to have promising medical research careers.
