Overview of MRC review process

Peer review is the cornerstone of the work of the MRC as it identifies the grants and fellowships to fund. Proposals for funding are taken through an assessment process described below.

The peer review process for centres, units and institutes follows the same principles but has a slightly different process. See What are Institutes, Units and Centres? for more information.

All researchers supported by the MRC are expected to participate in peer review.
