Our 2005/06 Annual Review shows how every day the achievements of MRC scientists are making a real difference to the lives of people of all ages everywhere.
For almost a century, the Medical Research Council (MRC) has employed and funded people who’ve made pioneering discoveries and improved the health of millions.
First and foremost in the MRC’s mission is supporting research with the aim of improving human health. Our scientists are behind some of the most important medical advances of the past century.
Throughout the 20th century MRC researchers were the driving force behind a stream of remarkable advances that transformed medicine and are benefiting people all over the world today.
This year’s Annual Review gives a glimpse into a day in the life of the Medical Research Council. We drop in on MRC people over the course of their working day to find out what they’re doing.
The Medical Research Council (MRC) is the UK’s largest public funder of biomedical research.We work closely with the health departments, other government agencies, the NHS and industry, yet we are independent of them.
This is the Medical Research Council’s (MRC) Equality and Diversity Vision. It sets out our commitment to fulfil our obligations as a public body under the Equality Act 2010 (EqA 2010) and ensure MRC policies, practices and services reflect the diverse needs and experiences of all the people, partners and stakeholders we engage with.
The MRC celebrated 100 years of supporting ground-breaking research and innovation in 2013.
