Partner with us

As one of the first research institutes to be established at 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.

What we can offer to partners:

  • Reach to delegates around the world:
    Delegates travel from national and international institutions every year to complete specialist training at MRC Harwell for in vivo science and mouse genetics research.

  • On-site mouse facility:
    Advance is situated adjacent to our world-renowned Mary Lyon Centre, offering unique access for partners to host and deliver specialist laboratory animal science practical courses.

  • Brand recognition:
    Funded by the UKRI-MRC, MRC Harwell is a non-profit organisation seeking to provide employer-led training for academia and industry. The primary aim of Advance is to promote education and inclusive opportunities for scientific and technical staff in the UK, and promote good practices in animal welfare for scientists worldwide.

  • In-house expertise:
    Alongside the fantastic resources in Advance and the MLC, we have a number of specialist and highly skilled trainers who can provide additional expertise to ensure the development and delivery of high value training courses.
