At SSRI we are conscious that we do not live in a vacuum. Rather, we are but one of thousands of medical research institutes, together serving a community of billions. Whilst remaining firmly focused on our longer term aims of bringing better outcomes to patients, we recognise that for many present day patients who may have benefitted from the results of our research were they to have contracted their illness a number of years hence, a requirement remains to take care of their present necessities.
To this end, as part of our contribution to broader society, we actively foster links supporting communities that have grown up around existing patients and their families, who have been touched by infectious diseases such as meningococcal disease, as well as cancers. By supporting the initiatives of such communities, we hope to provide support to existing patients in line with our long term objectives.
