ACCELERATING THE PACE OF DISCOVERY

Arriving a little later than usual due to the constraints of lockdown, but today we are delighted to share our Annual Review and Accounts for 2019/20. The report features page after page of highlights of some of the vital research we are funding, alongside some wonderful ways in which our supporters have made it happen!

It was slightly bittersweet looking back over the year as everything in the report took place pre-COVID-19 and pre-lockdown – so many face-to-face events! But it’s a new year, and thanks to the hard work and commitment of our supporters, we’re starting 2021 with more drive and ambition than ever before.
