A quick blog this morning to highlight the Cancer Research UK commissioned, Office of Health Economics report published today which looks at the interdependency of public and charity medical research.
Cancer Research UK’s policy guru, Harriet Teare, gives a commentary on the study and what it means on their blog this morning.
The co-dependency of public, charity and private sector research was a key issue in the Spending Review. Just because the latter is now been and gone does not mean the subject is no longer worthy of further examination and study – there will be other Spending Reviews to come, for instance. So the report is welcome in providing further evidence about the importance of getting the recipe right for research now and in the future.
Food for thought in other words.
