Better Methods, Better Research
Support for methodology
The MRC supports methodology development through a variety of mechanisms: embedded within broader research proposals considered by our Boards and Panels, programmatically within Units and Institutes and development of underpinning methodologies via the MRC-NIHR Better Methods, Better Research Panel.
MRC-NIHR Better Methods, Better Research Panel
The MRC-NIHR Better Methods, Better Research Panel (BMBR) is structured to respond to the underpinning methodological priorities in health research across the entire MRC and NIHR remit.
The BMBR Panel considers response-mode applications from the perspective of potential methodological innovation, the drivers for methods development, and informative value of the methods.
