Medical Research Scotland was set up in 1953. Since then, it has awarded more than £33 million in grants for research in Scotland. One of its earliest grants was to Professor Ian Donald, for his pioneering work on obstetric ultrasound. The grants we’re making today will have similarly long-lasting benefits for future generations. You can read about the work being done by more recent recipients of our grants by following the links on the left, or in our Annual Reports & Reviews
