Celebrating 20 years of life changing medical research
We were delighted to celebrate our 20th anniversary by bringing together 100 Ambassadors, Trustees, Research Partners and Supporters for an afternoon tea hosted by our patron, HRH The Countess of Wessex, at Buckingham Palace.
Since we were established 20 years ago, we have overseen a £50 million programme of life changing medical research. We work with leading clinicians and researchers from world-class institutions across the UK to achieve our ultimate aim: scar free healing within a generation.
Our approach is networked and collaborative: we bring together leading scientists, engineers, clinicians and patients from the UK and beyond to achieve our ultimate aim: scar free healing within a generation. By accessing the unique research resource of the NHS we focus on funding projects with clear potential for clinical impact that will ultimately improve care and bring us closer to scar free healing.
We are harnessing the power of our combined scientific strengths in pathway biology, stem cell research, comparative biology and human genetics together with those in bioengineering, physical and mathematical sciences to achieve our aim of a world without scarring.
