    Supporting emerging research leaders



The Medical Research Foundation aims to advance medical research, improve human health and change people's lives.

Many of the diseases and conditions that affect human health have been cured or overcome as a result of medical research.

But there will always be more to do.

Although significant resources are being spent on developing exciting new treatments and therapes, there are areas of medical need that receive little or no support - and people's lives that see no improvement. 

That's where we step in. 

The Medical Research Foundation is the independent charitable foundation of the MRC and we are free to grow and nuture people and ideas wherever we see opportunities with great potential. 

Investing the power of your donations to change medicine and change lives.
