Partnering with Advance

The oldest institution in the Harwell Science and Innovation Campus, MRC Harwell is an international leader in the study of mammalian models of disease.

We are at the forefront of genetic research in the UK, and since 2004, are the only facility offering a mixture of practical and theoretical courses in laboratory animal science and genetics. As a member council of UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), MRC Harwell aims to answer the growing skills gap in technical roles by opening our new Advance training centre in July 2020. This will offer versatile laboratory and practical training rooms for a range of scientific training needs, as well as a modern meeting space for professional meetings and conferences.

We welcome collaborations with training providers, academic societies and institutions, commercial firms and professional bodies to host scientific training opportunities.
