Research funded by the Medical Research Council has led to some of the most significant medical advances of the last century and generated millions of pounds for the UK economy. However, we recognise that exploitation of academic research to deliver health benefits, economic growth and jobs is the best delivered in the commercial sector. We aim to ensure that research originating in the MRC BNDU has the best chance of successful exploitation and to protect and highlight our research with the most immediate impact.
For more information on our intellectual property, or to enquire about licencing, please contact Unit Adminstrator Dr. Vivienne Collins. We are also open to applications to license our datasets under different terms; for example if you plan a commercial product, derived from one of our datasets, that you would like to relicense with more restrictive terms, which is not compatible with the Share Alike clause.
