Pancreatic Cancer UK was delighted to hear that we have once again been awarded an AMRC (Association of Medical Research Charities) Best Practice certificate in the most recent Peer Review Audit 2015.
The AMRC is the national membership organisation of leading medical research charities, including Pancreatic Cancer UK. Every five years, a group of expert representatives convened by the AMRC come together to ensure that we can show that we are only funding research through robust processes, for example showing accountability, independence, and impartiality. This ensures that we are supporting only the best researchers and the highest quality research, with the best chance of benefitting people affected by pancreatic cancer and improving survival outcomes which shockingly have not changed in the last 40 years.
Leanne Reynolds, Head of Research at Pancreatic Cancer UK, says: “We were absolutely delighted to hear this welcome news acknowledging the quality of our research strategy and the methods we use to award funding for research. We are completely committed to only funding the best research and this wouldn’t be possible without the hard work of the members of our Scientific Advisory Board, who work tirelessly to advise us on which research projects we should fund and which researchers we should support. Through our research programme we are leading the fight against pancreatic cancer.”
