£1.2 million research investment for sick and disabled babies and children

19 March 2013

Action Medical Research – a UK-wide charity funding vital research to help sick and disabled babies and children – has today announced grants worth more than £1.2 million for top researchers across the UK.

In this latest round of funding, the charity has given out a total of £1,286,500 across 12 different research projects, including studies looking into: epilepsy, bacterial meningitis, multiple sclerosis and primary ciliary dyskinesia.

The charity does not receive any government funding. None of the research they fund would be possible without the support of people who generously spare their time as volunteers, make donations, raise funds and take part in events, leave gifts in their wills, as well as trust and corporate partners.
