Chief Executive's Statement
PCR CEO, Oliver Kemp, discussed the significant progress we made in 2020, despite the COVID-19 pandemic.
At PCR, we have been focusing on becoming both better connected with the researchers we fund and more agile as an organisation. These qualities became incredibly important when the COVID-19 pandemic hit.
We changed our goals for 2020 in March as we knew fundraising would be more challenging during lockdowns. Instead, we dedicated our time to what we were still able to do, and worked hard to keeping our research going. Overall, we achieved all the of the new goals we set ourselves.
We never had to cut a project or research budget. In fact, we even launched a grant call for new research projects. We were pleased to be able to offer this essential funding to scientists in a year where many couldn’t.
