About the Medical Research Foundation

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 around the world developing exciting new treatments and therapies, 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 an independent charitable foundation. Formed by the Medical Research Council (MRC), we fund and support the most promising health research wherever we discover great opportunities that are not being pursued. We use our donations responsibly and ensure we make the greatest impact where it is most needed.

Our team is proud to work for the Medical Research Foundation to help deliver our vision of advancing medical research, improving human health and changing people’s lives. We are ambitious for the Medical Research Foundation and for ourselves. We are approachable - providing advice to everyone and explaining our work. We are dedicated and committed to achieving the most for our donors and our researchers.  And we are involved – constantly looking for new ways to engage and improve.  Visit our website for more information about what we do www.medicalresearchfoundation.org.uk.
