Why R&D Matters

In his most recent Budget, the Chancellor announced the R&D tax credit for larger companies, complementing the R&D tax credit for small and medium-sized companies introduced in Budget 2000. Together the two credits will represent £500 million a year in additional Government support for business R&D investment in the UK. This level of commitment reflects the Government's determination to increase the level of R&D investment by UK industry. As Figure 1 shows, business R&D intensity in the UK does not fare well with comparable economies.Figure 1 shows the overall average business R&D intensity in the UK, but the picture varies from sector to sector. At 14.8 per cent of sales (1), R&D investment by the UK pharmaceutical industry is competitive by international standards - although recent years have seen a trend for UK-owned groups to undertake an increasing proportion of their R&D outside the UK, and we estimate a decline in the UK share of worldwide pharmaceutical R&D from 11 per cent to 9 per cent (2).

The current and future role of the medical oncologist in the professional care for cancer patients: a position paper by the European Society for Medical Oncology

European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO)

  The number of cancer patients in Europe is rising and significant advances in basic and applied cancer research are making the provision of optimal care more challenging. The concept of cancer as a systemic, highly heterogeneous and complex disease has increased the awareness that quality cancer care should be provided by a multidisciplinary team (MDT) of highly qualified healthcare professionals. Cancer patients also have the right to benefit from medical progress by receiving optimal treatment from adequately trained and highly skilled medical professionals.
