Comment from Academy experts

 If you would like to speak to one of our Fellows, a grant or programme awardee or a patient representative for comment on an Academy report or particular story, please contact the Press Office

The Academy’s Fellows and emerging research leaders are drawn from laboratory science, clinical academic medicine, veterinary science, dentistry, medical and nursing care and other professions allied to medical science.

The Academy’s policy work is shaped with the views of wider society through public dialogue. We work to get expert patient and public voices in our work, and available to the media to add their experience.   

The diversity of talent amongst our experts ensures that the Academy is able to deal with complex health issues, which extend beyond the traditional boundaries of medicine.
