Description:
Since it was established in 1937 the general funds of the Council, apart from the amount allocated to the Medical Research Council Laboratories, have gone almost entirely to the support of research in or associated with departments in medical schools and teaching hospitals. The reasons for this have been stated before. The most important was the fact that only in such departments did the essential background support for research exist at that time. Some saving was also effected in that research workers could frequently use equipment available in the departments. Conversely, departments benefited in that equipment purchased for research could be used by departmental staff when not needed by the research workers. At first the greater part of the support given in this way went to the pre-clinical departments. During the last two decades the availability of objective methods for investigating disease and of personnel trained in the use of these methods enabled the Council to increase substantially its support for research on clinical problems. This has had an important influence on the development of modern clinical departments in Irish medical schools.
