Abstract

Importance of UK collaboration with the EU The partnerships between the UK and other EU Member States significantly increase the impact and influence of the EU’s science and research activity. When collaborating with the UK, the share of EU co-authored publications in the top 10% of highly cited publications in medical and health research is higher.2 The UK is also a top five collaboration partner for each of the other 27 Member States,3 and contributed almost 20% of the total research work carried out within EU health programmes between 2007–2016.2 European collaboration is particularly important in some fields – stratified medicine a

Abstract

This investment in research also benefits the UK economy providing employment, trade, and addressing shortfalls in STEM skills (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics). In addition to giving patients faster access to treatments, getting efficacious and safe medicines registered more efficiently enables the trial sponsor to gain reimbursement for those medications sooner. Evolving bio-pharmaceutical model Medical research changed dramatically with the discovery of the structure of DNA and the subsequent understanding of genetic code, with DNA sequencing and amplification. This has led to medicines becoming increasingly personalised
