Abstract

Third sector medical research plays an important role both in the Northern Ireland economy and society. Medical research makes huge contributions to society through developing new treatments, improving existing ones and advancing technologies that can help save lives such as vaccinations that can help fight against infectious diseases such as Covid-19. Charities are major funders of medical research in Northern Ireland. Medical research funding by charities has been estimated to be 35% of all third sector and public funding of medical research, with active research funding of £9m in 2018.
