Helix Group

The Academy’s Helix Group of individual donors provides vital funds to support our work.  We invite new members to join, please donate online and join the Helix Group today.

The Helix Group includes the Academy’s most esteemed individual supports who donate £250 or more, each year, to the Academy, providing valuable unrestricted funds. The funding we receive from the group enables us to maintain our authority and independence and initiate work using the unique expertise provided by our Fellows, to address unmet challenges in the biomedical sciences.

Helix Group members are publically recognised on a commemorative board in our Fellow’s room, on our website and in our annual report. Members receive an annual update on Academy programmes, an invitation to the prestigious annual Helix Reception hosted by our President, Professor Sir Robert Lechler PMedSci and further invitations to Academy events.

The latest edition of the Helix Newsletter and the Helix impacts webpage illustrates what has already been achieved with the collective support from the Helix Group and others. If you would like to support the Academy to expand our policy influence and crucial support of early career researchers, then please download our donation form and sign up today.
