The mission of the Medical Research Council (MRC) Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine (MRC WIMM) is to investigate the processes underlying normal cell and molecular biology and to determine the mechanisms by which these processes are perturbed in inherited and acquired human diseases. The MRC WIMM combines outstanding clinical research with excellent basic science through an equal mixture of scientists and clinicians working together and in collaboration with the National Institute of Health Research, the NHS and with commercial companies with the aim of improving the diagnosis and treatment of human diseases. The major topics of current research include haematology, immunology, stem cell biology, oncology and inherited human genetic diseases. The MRC WIMM hosts the MRC Molecular Haematology Unit and MRC Human Immunology Unit.
