Applied Global Health Research Board

Official Development Assistance (ODA) update

Please note that MRC’s Applied Global Health Research Board has temporarily been suspended. Please refer to ODA review for further information.


The Applied Global Health Research Board is responsible for MRC’s investments in applied health research for the benefit of populations in low and middle income countries (LMICs).

The Board’s strategy recognises the diversity of health challenges facing the world’s poorest populations and the input of the various disciplines and stakeholders required to tackle these challenges.

The Board is committed to supporting capacity building for research in LMICs and is open to applications both from Principal Investigators (PIs) in the UK and directly from PIs in LMICs, without the need for a UK collaborator.

Funding for the Board is provided by the MRC’s Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) allocation and via the MRC-Foreign Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) concordat.
