About MRC Unit The Gambia (MRCG)

The MRC Unit The Gambia (MRCG) represents a unique concentration of scientific expertise and high quality research platforms in the West African region. For almost 70 years, the MRCG has tackled major infectious diseases of global public health importance in sub‐Saharan Africa and is currently a focused centre for delivering excellent global health research under the strategic aim 3 of the current MRC 10‐year strategic plan, i.e. going global – accelerating progress in international health research. Its research output has informed the implementation of public health interventions that have had (and continue to have) a major impact on childhood mortality and morbidity, not only in The Gambia but also in other sub‐Saharan African countries.

The Unit’s investigator‐led research is underpinned by the combination of excellent laboratory facilities and easy access to the field with well‐defined populations that are highly supportive of our research, excellent clinical services, rigorous ethical procedures and ability to deliver GCP‐compliant clinical trials. Its large research portfolio spans basic research to the evaluation of interventions for the control of diseases of public health importance in sub‐Saharan Africa.
