About us

Working for the MRC

Working with the MRC means you are working for an organisation that provided the scientific expertise behind major medical breakthroughs, such as discovery of the structure of DNA and the lethal link between smoking and cancer. Today we are at the forefront of medical research in the 21st century.

This presentation takes you through our history, current structure, units and institutes, and some health and safety requirements associated with working here. It’s designed to give new starters an overall picture of what is going on within the organisation. We hope it gives you a useful insight into your new work place.
