Academy aims to safeguard research during health reforms

The Academy of Medical Sciences has outlined plans to lobby the newly created health agencies to ensure that they treat research as central to their missions.

In its annual report, the academy says it will engage with the NHS Commissioning Board and Public Health England established under the ongoing NHS reforms. The learned society also plans to promote the translation of medical research. “We will explore new relationships between academia, industry and the NHS in the development pipeline, particularly the role of the emerging Academic Health Science Partnerships,” the report states.

Plans include publishing a report on stratified medicine, holding a roundtable of its fellows and representatives from the Health Research Authority, and other events to bring academics, industry insiders and the NHS together.
