Translating Innovative Science Into Clinical Solutions

Rosetrees is a private UK charity

Supporting cutting edge medical research since 1990.

The aim is to improve the health and wellbeing of society.

Currently, around 300 projects are supported, from seedcorn 'out of the box' research ideas to large awards, many with co-funders.

The focus is on testing new ideas across the spectrum of medical research to bring the earliest patient benefit.

How we make a difference

Since 1990 our continuous investment into scientists have led to over £1.15 billion in follow on funding at over 85 institutions.

In the last 5 years alone, our researchers as a result of a Rosetrees grant have leveraged a further £230 million from other funding bodies.

With the support of an initial Rosetrees grant we have facilitated the delivery of 47 drugs, gene therapies, diagnostic tools, therapeutic interventions and a vaccine.
