The Francis Crick Institute
1 Midland Road
London NW1 1AT
The Francis Crick Institute is dedicated to understanding the fundamental biology underlying health and disease. Its work is helping to understand why disease develops and to translate discoveries into new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat illnesses such as cancer, heart disease, stroke, infections and neurodegenerative diseases.
The Crick is an independent organisation founded by the Medical Research Council (MRC), Cancer Research UK, Wellcome, UCL, Imperial College London and King's College London. It was formed in 2015, and in 2016 it moved into a brand new state-of-the-art building in central London which brings together 1500 scientists and supports staff working collaboratively across disciplines, making it the biggest biomedical research facility under a single roof in Europe.
