MRC Establishments


MRC/CSO Social and Public Health Sciences Unit

At MRC/CSO Social and Public Health Sciences Unit, we conduct high quality research that has a real impact on health and wellbeing, and on reducing health inequalities – both at home and across the globe.

Centre for Regenerative Medicine

Our Scientists and clinicians study stem cells, disease and tissue repair to advance human health. Research at the Centre is aimed at developing new treatments for major diseases including cancer, heart disease, liver failure, and degenerative diseases such as multiple sclerosis and Parkinson's.

Centre for Reproductive Health

Reproduction is a fundamental feature of all life, essential for the continuation of our species. Reproductive success – the birth of a baby that will enjoy a long, healthy life – is a complex multistep process requiring production of sufficient numbers of viable gametes, fertilisation, implantation in a ‘receptive’ uterus, formation of a placenta that can sustain and nurture the baby and delivery at full term.

MRC Human Genetics Unit

We combine the latest computational and experimental technologies to investigate how our genomes work to control the function of molecules, cells and tissues in people and populations. For more than half a century our research has been dedicated to understanding human genetic disease. T

MRC Centre for Virus Research

The CVR takes an innovative interdisciplinary approach to the study of viruses and viral diseases, bringing diverse expertise together with state-of-the-art technologies and facilities, to pursue a holistic approach spanning the molecular, cellular, host and population levels.

MRC Protein Phosphorylation and Ubiquitylation Unit

We study how eukaryotic cell biology is shaped by protein phosphorylation and ubiquitylation. Driven by our curiosity and passion to understand living creatures, our work aims to change lives by helping to cure human disease. With support from the MRC and a range of charities, we collaborate with leading research centres around the world. We also work with clinicians and pharmaceutical companies to translate our discoveries into medical progress.
