In the United Kingdom a new £5.8 million research centre is to be set up that will continue research the MDC has funded in Newcastle over the past 11 years. This research led by Professor Doug Turnbull involves a type of IVF to prevent mitochondrial diseases being passed from mother to child. This technique has proven successful in the laboratory but further research is required before it can be tested in a clinical trial. With this fund the new Wellcome Trust Centre for Mitochondrial Research will allow the researchers to take this research forward.
