asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will list the centres currently undertaking research under the auspices of the Medical Research Council on human embryos.
I understand that the Medical Research Council is currently supporting three projects involving early human embryos resulting from in vitro fertilisation. Details are as follows:
Direct support at MRC establishments:
- MRC experimental embryology and teratology unit.
- MRC reproductive biology unit.
Indirect support through grants to individual researchers:
- Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, university of Cambridge.
