Would you like to change medicine today and change lives tomorrow?

The Medical Research Foundation is a charitable foundation, formed by the Medical Research Council (MRC). We fund the most promising medical research in areas of great clinical need where investment in research is low and where, despite advances elsewhere in medicine, people’s lives see little change.

Join our team and make a difference to human health.
