MRC Festival of Medical Research programme launched today

17 May 2017

The second annual MRC Festival of Medical Research will take place from 17–25 June 2017. To find MRC Festival activities near you to attend, take a look at the programme.  

The MRC Festival takes place in England, Scotland and Wales, online and in Africa where a wide range of free public activities involving scientists from research establishments, including MRC units, centres and institutes, will showcase MRC-funded research. 

MRC Festival activities include open days, public lectures and debates, activity days, workshops, interactive seminars and quizzes. Some are open to the public, either as drop-in sessions or by booking a free place in advance, while others are designed for a specifically invited audience.
