The permission given William Harvey by Charles I to make use of deer and other animals in the royal parks for investigative purposes is held to be probably the first instance of state support of medical research. Support of research is discussed, particularly as illustrated by the Medical Research Council in England, which of late has been receiving an annual grant of £195,000 from the government.
