MCR Infections and Immunity Research

Apply for funding for research projects focused on infections and immunity.

You must:

  • be based at a UK research organisation eligible for MRC funding, this includes MRC units and centres
  • have at least a postgraduate degree.

You can involve more than one research group or institution in the project.

There is no limit to the funding you can apply for, but it should be appropriate to the project. We will usually fund up to 80% of your project’s full economic cost.

Projects can last up to five years, but they typically last three to four years.

This is an ongoing scheme. Application rounds open every February, June and October.
