Welcome to the latest edition of the Medical Research Charities Group Newsletter!

We have plenty of news to share in this edition, including a new Associate Membership that we have launched for organisations who wish to join our passionate community of medical and health research charities, information on an upcoming MRCG seminar on the generation and use of evidence for advocacy purposes and a report from the most recent IHRF Forum on the topic of data protection and health research.

We also hear from Dr Laura Brady of Fighting Blindness in the Member Spotlight section and are delighted to introduce our new Chair, Suzanne McCormack of the Irish Thoracic Society. We wish to thank Philip Watt for his tireless service as our outgoing Chair. Philip will continue to be involved in the MRCG as a Director.

As always, thanks for reading and don't forget to follow us on Twitter @MRCGie and @IHRForum to keep up to date with our work and Irish health research news. The MRCG has developed a hashtag which we encourage our members and all with an interest in health research issues to use #HealthResearchMatters.
