The Francis Crick Institute

The Crick is a distinctive biomedical research institute. We are located in London, but our vision is UK-wide and relevant world-wide:
Our ambition is to discover the biology underlying human health, improving the treatment, diagnosis and prevention of human disease, and generating economic opportunities for the UK.
Our work helps to understand why disease develops and to find new ways to diagnose, prevent and treat a range of illnesses − such as cancer, heart disease, stroke, infections and neurodegenerative diseases.
We bring together outstanding scientists from all disciplines, carrying out research that will help improve the health and quality of people's lives, and keep the UK at the forefront of medical innovation.
