We focus on the world's biggest health challenges and supporting the best possible environment for researchers to thrive.
Our work with researchers and policy makers – as well as commercial, charitable and non-governmental organisations around the world – informs decisions about science and health, and provides strong evidence for coordinated global action.
We want to help the world overcome the COVID-19 pandemic. We're supporting research and development, and working to make sure that any new vaccines, tests and treatments are mass-produced quickly and reach everyone who needs them.
Current practices prioritise outputs over people’s wellbeing. We want to help build a better research culture – one that is creative, inclusive and honest.
The collective overuse of antibiotics has caused one of the most urgent health problems. We want to transform the world's response towards stemming the rise of drug-resistant infections.
Climate change, urban growth and unsustainable food systems threaten lives. Research evidence and new collaborations could protect and improve human and planetary health.
Vaccines prevent disease, save countless lives and cut healthcare costs. We want to help develop new vaccines and work out how to use the existing ones in a better way.
Knowledge and understanding don’t stop at borders. We're working with the UK government and others to achieve a Brexit settlement that allows research to thrive in the UK and Europe.
This is one of the world’s biggest hidden health crises. We want to transform the way snakebite treatments are researched and delivered to bring them into the 21st century.
Artificial intelligence (AI) and data technologies are transforming research and healthcare. We want to make sure everyone benefits from health data innovation.
[Summary] Our polling of more than 6,000 adults in the UK, the USA, Germany and France shows strong public support for making sure that any new coronavirus treatments and vaccines are first made available to those who need them most.
[Summary] Perspectives on and experiences of research culture, based on a survey of more than 4,000 researchers in the UK and globally.
[Summary] The world’s largest study into how people around the world think and feel about science and major health challenges.
