MRC’s terms and conditions set out our operational, legislative and ethical requirements for carrying out medical research.

If you have an MRC funding award you will need to:

  • comply with these terms and conditions
  • gain all necessary licences, approvals, permissions and consent.

You also need to read UK Research and Innovation’s terms and conditions. Both documents apply. In all cases the additional conditions override any others.

Some funding opportunities may also have additional requirements.
