Help us protect urology research

Aboutthe Urology Foundation

Urology research is at risk because of the economic impact of the pandemic.

That’s why we’re working with the Association of Medical Research Charities and over 150 other charities to make an urgent demand: We want the Government to match every pound invested in research by people like you.

The Association of Medical Research Charities have described the effect of the Covid-19 pandemic on research as follows:

 

The suspension of many fundraising activities and shop closures due to Covid-19 has had an immediate and severe impact on charities’ income. This risks having a devastating impact on charity funded research, with significant long-term consequences for scientific advances that tackle diseases including the UK’s biggest killers, dementia, coronary heart disease and cancer, as well as threatening the careers of scores of young scientists.

 

TUF, along with the AMRC, is inviting MPs to sign this open letter to the Chancellor of the Exchequer, which urges him to take action to preserve medical research charities’ unique and vital contributions to the UK’s research base and economy.

We need you to ask your MP to sign an open letter:

Email your MP (find their details here) and tell them why research matters to you. Include the following message and link:

Research into urological cancers and conditions is at risk. I need you to sign this open letter to call for Government to commit to a Life Sciences-Charity Partnership Fund to invest in medical research. https://www.amrc.org.uk/open-letter-to-the-chancellor-of-the-exchequer
