This article was originally published in Clinica
The UK Medical Research Council (MRC) is to stand before the House of Commons' Select Committee for Science and Technology (STC) on December 4 2002 to present evidence of its work and expenditure plans. Among the issues on the agenda are the Biobank and Stem Cell Bank projects (see Clinica No 1024, p 8). The Committee will consider comments on these and other areas of the MRC's work, by November 22. The meeting, which will be open to the public, is part of the ongoing programme of scrutiny of the UK's Research Councils, conducted under the STC's remit to examine the expenditure, policy and administration of the Office of Science and Technology and its associated public bodies.
