Medical research continues to expand with each major new discovery and technical innovation. It offers those with scientific ability a wide choice of opportunities to put their talents to work to improve human health. This page, from the Medical Research Council (MRC), which is aimed at general audiences, looks at what medical research involves, what it can offer as a career and typical entry level requirements.
MRC is a part of Research Councils UK (RCUK).

Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
