Borne is a member of the following organisations.


Association of Medical Research Charities


Borne is a member of the Association of Medical Research Charities (AMRC) and agrees with our sector’s principles and position with regards to:

  • awarding grants through open competition with external peer review;
  • the management of any conflicts of interest in the funding of medical research;
  • our support of research in universities;
  • and our position on using animals in research.

We endorse AMRC’s position statement on supporting research in universities (  We will not normally meet the full economic costs of the research we support, but will work with our grant-holding institution Imperial College, to ensure our awards are eligible for C stream funding from the HEFCE.
