Action Medical Research is the leading UK-wide charity dedicated to funding vital research to help sick children . As a charity we find and fund cutting-edge research across the UK most likely to deliver real benefit to children. Today we are funding over 75 projects across the UK; including many at UCL. We have been funding medical breakthroughs since we began in 1952 and almost everyone has been touched in some way by our groundbreaking work, like the first polio vaccines in the UK, ultrasound in pregnancy and the rubella vaccine. At Action we save and change children's lives through medical research
