The Association of Medical Research Charities (AMRC) is the national membership organisation of leading medical and health research charities. Its members collectively fund over forty per cent of all publicly funded medical research in the UK. In addition to its role in setting high standards around the governance and administration of medical research funding, AMRC also provides guidance to its members, and advocates collectively on their behalves across the sector.

This document reports on a brief study conducted at the Policy Institute at King’s College London, in which we analysed the nature and scale of collaborations and networks across researchers funded by AMRC member organisations. Specifically, the aims of this study were to:

1. demonstrate how data collected by AMRC member organisations to understand the
outputs and impacts arising from their funding of research can be used to find
collaborations, and
2. show the extent of any ‘connectivity’ between areas of research in the medical fields
across charities
