MRC Festival: Information for organisers

The MRC Festival of Medical Research will take place between 13-23 June 2019.

MRC-funded units, centres and institutes showcased and discussed their work through events and activities around the UK and beyond during the MRC Festival.


The MRC Festival aims to create a community across the MRC to share and celebrate medical research and its contribution to health, the economy and society. It also aims to support all MRC researchers, students, technical and professional support staff to deliver high-quality public engagement activities at the MRC Festival and throughout the year.

As in previous years MRC units, centres, institutes and collaborations of MRC-funded researchers can apply for funding to help cover activity costs.
