The Government demonstrated its ambitions for research, committing £14.6 billion to R&D next year.  This funding will support the life sciences sector within which Medical Research Charities operate alongside other research areas including brain tumours. BEIS and DHSC regularly discuss the impacts of COVID-19 on charity-funded research with the Association of Medical Research Charities and we are continuing to engage with them.
