To support our mission, the MRC Human Genetics Unit, with our partners at the Institute of Genetics and Cancer, promote a culture of knowledge and skill sharing and ensure that researchers in all of our centres have access to the right expertise and resources to translate or commercialize their research discoveries.

  • The Institute of Genetics and Cancer translational strategy is led by the the IGC Translational and Commercialization Board (TCB) and supported by dedicated business development, consulting and intellectual property support from Edinburgh Innovations
