Strategy of MRC

Our vision is to accelerate improvements in human health and economic prosperity for everyone, regardless of background, place or upbringing, by supporting world-class biomedical research and innovation, and strengthening partnerships within UKRI, across the UK and around the world.

In our new strategic delivery plan, we have renewed our commitment to supporting excellent fundamental discovery science to advance the frontiers of knowledge and maintain the breadth of expertise that allows us to respond rapidly to current and future challenges.

We will work across UKRI, with national and international partners, and industry to address health and societal challenges. This includes targeted support for those set out in the strategic themes of the UKRI strategy, focusing on securing better health, ageing and wellbeing and tackling infections, in support of the government’s Life Sciences Vision.

The MRC strategic delivery plan sets out our key priorities across the next 3 years. It was developed within the framework of the wider UKRI strategy and is 1 of the suite of UKRI strategic delivery plans which showcases the part each council will play in delivering the wider UKRI mission and vision.
