Drive benefits for human health

Priority objective 3


The Crick aspires to use insights from discovery research to develop tangible benefits for human health and wellbeing.

Success requires a culture that fosters interaction between laboratory scientists, clinicians and those engaged in translational research, creating a melting pot in which expertise from academic, clinical and industrial worlds converge.

We aim to accelerate the translation of scientific advances into patient benefits by supporting researchers to access the expertise, capabilities and connections they need to develop their ideas, while attracting excellent clinician scientists to the Crick and expanding our clinical interactions.

We emphasise early-stage translational research and accelerating the adoption of technology by industry.

We work with a wide range of partners and prioritise exploiting knowledge for societal benefit, rather than our own short-term financial gain, creating a world-class environment for translational research.
