Activities of the Medical Research Council


    PERUSAL of the report of the Medical Research Council for 1925–1926,1 as usual, gives the reader a bird's-eye view of much of the research work which has been carried out in Great Britain on medical and allied subjects during this period. By the system of grants-in-aid to workers in university and hospital laboratories, etc., the Council is enabled to promote research on a much wider variety of subjects than would otherwise be possible; in fact, almost two-thirds of the Parliamentary grant of £135,000 was utilised in this manner, the greater part of the remainder being devoted to the expenses of the National Institute at Hampstead and of the farm laboratories at Mill Hill. Only a few of the more salient points of the report can be touched on in this short account.
