For MRC grants that involve collaborations, almost half (43%) are international. They are running a symposium in Washington D.C to encourage more of this, by joining up UK early career researchers and National Institutes of Health (NIH) researchers working in neurodegeneration. But what’s the international incentive? Three researchers with MRC-NIH Partnership Awards share how they hope to benefit. Dr Chi-Hun Kim,…
