One of the major generous supporters of the Department's research is Medical Research Council (MRC). Many of our researchers and activities are, or have been, supported by the MRC. This on-going relationship is key to the Department's success. Below are podcasts from many of those researchers who have benefited from the support of the MRC. In 2013 the Medical Research Council celebrated its 100th Anniversary.
