Touching Lives - March 2011

Supporters meet top researchers

Some of the very best scientists working in the UK told their inspiring stories to an audience of Action Medical Research supporters at the House of Lords in September. Professor David Edwards, a pioneer in the development of treatments for newborn babies with brain damage, was one of the esteemed speakers at the reception. He spoke passionately about the necessity of medical research, emphasising the leading role the charity has played in funding groundbreaking work. 

Other dedicated researchers, who volunteered their time, talked about the work they are doing in the areas of premature birth, epilepsy, Rett syndrome, brittle bone disease and peanut allergies. Our Chair, Richard Price, spoke about the aims of the charity and how we are funding the very best medical research to help babies and children.
 
The event, hosted by Lord Bridgeman, was held for Action Partners, who are individuals, companies or trusts at the forefront of our work. By committing to support us through donations of at least £5,000 a year for a minimum of three years, Action Partners are major supporters. They are closely involved in making vital research projects possible.
