President responds to Advanced Research & Invention Agency

The President of the Academy of Medical Sciences, Professor Dame Anne Johnson PMedSci, responds to news of the creation of the Advanced Research & Invention Agency (ARIA), a new agency to fund high-risk and potentially high-reward research.

 “I welcome this new addition to the UK Government’s funding portfolio, which I hope will complement the system with novel mechanisms to support risky research that is capable of delivering significant reward. The COVID crisis has had extensive and tragic effects, but has undoubtedly challenged the research community to bring rapid and impactful innovation in medical research. I hope that this new agency will find ways to harness this ingenuity and apply it to a wide range of health challenges in future.”
