The Francis Crick Institute
Biomedical discovery institute dedicated to understanding the biology underlying health and disease
We are an independent organisation, established to be a UK flagship for discovery research in biomedicine. Our founding partners are the Medical Research Council (MRC), Cancer Research UK, Wellcome, UCL, Imperial College London and King's College London.
The Crick was formed in 2015 and in 2017 became fully operational in our state-of-the-art building in central London, making us the biggest biomedical research facility under a single roof in Europe.
Here 1900 researchers and support staff bring together their wide-ranging knowledge and expertise to work across disciplines and explore biology at all levels, from molecules through cells to entire organisms.
