If you are a journalist and would like to find out more about our areas of research, speak to an expert or arrange filming at one of our facilities, please contact the press offices to make the necessary arrangements.

For other press officers

If you plan to mention the MRC Centre for Regenerative Medicine or our research in a press release please let Jen Middleton (University of Edinburgh), Hannah Isom (Medical Research Council) and Robin Morton (CRM) know before you have drafted the release so that they can provide any necessary input into the release and coordinate cross-posting on our website, Twitter, etc. It also helps us be prepared if we get calls from the media on the subject.
