Our building

In building the new Francis Crick Institutes, the Crick partners aim was to create a world-leading centre of biomedical research and innovation in the heart of London.

Dedicated to research excellence, it has the scale, vision and expertise to tackle challenging scientific questions underpinning health and disease.

Its work is helping to develop new treatments for illnesses such as cancer, heart disease, stroke, neurodegenerative conditions and infectious diseases.

It promotes connections between researchers, between disciplines and between academic institutions, healthcare organisations and businesses.

The institute's fresh approach extends to progressing research breakthroughs to practical applications in hospitals and pharmacies.

As well as being a substantial centre in its own right, the Francis Crick Institute exerts wider influence as a flagship for UK biomedical science.

On 1 April 2015, the Francis Crick Institute reached an important milestone when researchers at the MRC's National Institute for Medical Research and CRUK's London Research Institute became part of the Francis Crick Institute. 

The construction of the institute's new facilities at St Pancras was completed in August 2016. Researchers from the Crick's legacy institutes moved into the new Crick Lab in a phased process that took a number of months. 

The new building, located in the London Borough of Camden, sits amid a unique cluster of scientific skill, leading hospitals and one of the world's top universities, UCL. It will provide a new focal point for the considerable talent and knowledge in the area while playing its part in the life of the local community.
