To celebrate 100 years of life-saving science, MRC research units and centres across the UK have taken part in Open Week throwing open their doors – inviting the public in or bringing their science out to local communities to showcase the fruits of their labour through a range of different events, talks, experiments and exhibitions.
It is now the turn of the Medical Research Council staff in Cambridge to be merry. Sir John Savill and the MRC Management Board have invited the LMB and MRC units in Cambridge to the MRC Centenary celebration hosted by the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology to mark the end of the MRC Centenary year.
There will be a Photograph/ Art Competition “My Life and the MRC”, where MRC staff will unleash their creative talents and show the world what the MRC means to them. The first ten runners will see their art exhibited on the day and across the MRC.
The ‘Cambridge MRC Centenary Team Challenge’ will also be held. Several MRC Units entered their teams and will pit their knowledge and wits against the best of the rest (and the quizmaster) in this very special quiz.
Food and drinks will be provided. The events will be accompanied by live music performed by MRC staff.

Time: 12.00 – 2.30pm and again at 4.30pm – 7.00pm
