Representing 84 nonprofit funders having invested nearly $14 billion in biomedical research and training, the Health Research Alliance is focused on speeding the translation of biomedical science into applications that improve health, and in identifying and adopting effective practices in funding health research.
Throughout 2019, HRA created opportunities that brought together diverse perspectives and a broad range of experiences and expertise needed to tackle its members’ shared challenges. From creating safe and trusted space for candid discussion to identifying best practices, HRA provided value by:
- fostering open communication and collaboration among and between funders and the broader research community.
- collecting and sharing comprehensive data and analysis about nonprofit funding for biomedical research and training.
- providing leadership, knowledge, tools, and opportunities to promote innovative and effective grantmaking.
- addressing issues key to accelerating research discovery and its translation.
At HRA, we are steadfast in our commitment to maximizing the impact of biomedical research and we believe that collaboration is not only key – but may be the only real way to get us there. This is why we were so thrilled to convene our first-of-its-kind workshop focused on making collaboration happen among HRA members. In addition, below you will find curated highlights of our work this past year.
We thank you for working with us and we look forward to an even more productive and collaborative 2020!
