The MRC Centre of Epidemiology for Child Health is due to open in March 2006 and will be based at the ICH, in University College London. It will be led by the ICH's Professor Carol Dezateux. The MRC spends around half of its £500m ($880m) annual budget on running its 40 institutes, units and centres.
