Welcome to MRC Festival Zone!

An online event where school students connect with medical researchers and technical staff. It’s a competition, where the students are the judges.

Students challenge the researchers and technical staff over fast-paced online text-based live CHATs. They ASK anything they want, and VOTE for their favourite competitor to win a prize of £500 to communicate their work with the public.

MRC Festival Zone runs 3rd–28th June 2019

The MRC Festival Zone is part of the Medical Research Council’s annual festival of activities.
