The Frances Crick Institute – open for business

Her Majesty The Queen today (Wednesday 9 November) officially opened the Frances Crick Institute’s new building in Somers Town.

Dedicated to research excellence, the Institute tackles challenging scientific questions underpinning health and disease, with its work 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.

Councillor Sarah Hayward, Leader of Camden Council
“It’s great to see the opening another world class institution in the Borough. The Crick will be at the forefront of scientific research for generations to come. They’re already working closely with Camden schools and communities and I look forward to continuing our strong partnership.

“A huge effort has gone into bringing the Crick to Camden and I’d like to congratulate everyone involved in this huge project from early planning right through to today’s launch.”
