Strengthening Experimental Medicine
Prompted by a consensus that more investment was needed in experimental medicine, the major funding bodies within the UKCRC have undertaken several joint initiatives to strengthen research in this field.
UKCRC Partners and stakeholders have invested over £134 million joint funding in clinical research infrastructure and in supporting programmes in experimental medicine.
The UKCRC Partners are undertaking further work to ensure that activities in the field of experimental medicine are compatible and coordinated.
The first definitive, centralised information resource on experimental medicine facilities and expertise in the UK, aimed at industry and academic investigators seeking contacts and information.
During 2010/11, the UK funders of experimental medicine have discussed and agreed a common vision for their investment in human tissue resources.
