From basic research through clinical application to healthcare delivery, the Academy of Medical Sciences champions innovation and transforms patient outcomes.

Our prestige and influence allow us to have a transformative impact on policy and research.
You will play a leading role in the Academy’s major policy projects and be involved in some or all stages of these projects (scoping, initiation, delivery and follow up). Key priorities during the period of the post will include delivering the implementation plan for the recommendations of our report on ‘Improving the use of scientific evidence for medicines’ project, supporting a new package of work on horizon scanning and scoping new projects.
