The Medical Research Foundation (MRF) is the Medical Research Council's (MRC) independent charity.

We are a medical research charity that has been supporting research across the whole spectrum of medical and health research disciplines for over 90 years.

High Need:

We support research areas of high disease burden and unmet health need, focusing particularly in areas where the current investment is disproportionately low.

Emerging Research Leaders:

We invest in emerging research leaders, to provide opportunities and skills for the next generation of researchers to address the health challenges of today and tomorrow. 

Basic Research:

We support basic research that increases our understanding of biological processes leading to disease. 

Disseminating Research:

We support scientists to disseminate their research results beyond the scientific press to patients, policy-makers and practitioners in order that the results can influence healthcare policy and practise, as well as life-choices. 

You can support the MRF through a legacy in your will, through a regular direct debit, or through a one-off donation by visiting our website 

About the MRC:

The Medical Research Council is the UK's major public funder of medical research. The MRC improves the health of people in the UK - and around the world - by supporting excellent science, and training the very best scientists. To date, 31 MRC-funded scientists have won Nobel Prizes for their achievements in biomedical research.
