Professor Anne Willis OBE, Unit Director, is pleased to announce that the MRC Toxicology Unit has successfully transferred to the University of Cambridge as an MRC University Unit. The transfer took place on 1 March 2018. The Unit will still be known as the Medical Research Council Toxicology Unit and will still be based at the Hodgkin Building in Leicester. It is anticipated that the unit will move to Cambridge in 2020. "The MRC Toxicology Unit has been part of the Leicester landscape for 25 years now, and has always had fruitful links with the University of Leicester. The Unit is delighted to become part of the University of Cambridge, and particularly with the School of Biological Sciences".
