Multidisciplinary Cardiovascular Research Centre (MCRC)

Leeds’ Multidisciplinary Cardiovascular Research Centre (MCRC) was founded in 2008 as the first constitutional organisation for all cardiovascular research across the University of Leeds and its associated Teaching Hospitals.

Its fifty-two principal investigators, along with their research assistants and students, are structured into five Multidisciplinary Programme Groups (MPGs) and one Technology Group based in the School of Chemistry.

The MPGs incorporate clinical and basic investigators across key scientific disciplines, linking the researchers to other parts of the University and its Teaching Hospitals to maximise the possibilities for delivering significant discoveries and innovations and developing them to improve the lives of patients.

The titles of the MPGs highlight the strengths and interests across MCRC:

Four of the MPGs are led by members of LICAMM and are substantially composed of LICAMM staff and students. 

The Director of MCRC, Professor David Beech FMedSci, works closely with LICAMM and is a member of its Academic Forum.
