Lab research

The Research Advisory Committee has been established to advise the Board of Trustees and Chief Executive of the Charity on its research strategies and policies, and to make recommendations as to which research grants the charity should support.

The membership of the Committee has been carefully selected to ensure a broad range of expert, user and organisational inputs. The involvement of clinicians/researchers who are independent of the Charity is essential in achieving rigorous and transparent advice.

Our Research Advisory Committee must adhere to our Conflicts of Interest Policy.
