The Medical Research Council (MRC) and the University of Cambridge are delighted to announce that, today, the MRC Mitochondrial Biology Unit (MRC MBU) has transferred into the University and is now a University Unit department within the School of Clinical Medicine.
The MRC MBU has retained its current research facilities in the Wellcome Trust/MRC Building on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus and its staff members are now employees of the University.
This transfer is part of a wider strategic alliance between the MRC and the University of Cambridge to build on excellent research, strengthen integration with University research activities and open up new scientific opportunities and funding.
Professor Massimo Zeviani, Director of the MRC MBU said:
“We are excited by the opportunities presented by this transfer and we very much look forward to closer collaborations with our University colleagues in pursuit of our scientific goals.”
