As Europe’s largest biomedical research facility under one roof, our distinctive approach and design enables us to drive scientific progress like few others.   

The Crick is a magnet for scientific talent across the globe, where experts from across disciplines come together in pursuit of discoveries that change lives. 

Our researchers are selected and trained to work at the frontiers of possibility. Philanthropy can help us cross those frontiers faster by funding our people, investing in our technology, supporting our research, enhancing our widening access initiatives, and providing flexibility by donating to our Horizon Fund.


Help fuel scientific discovery

You can contribute to our science by supporting a range of funding opportunities or donating to our Horizon fund - supporting all the work we do at the Crick, now and in the future.

Be a part of our vision

The Crick creates the ideal environment for curiosity-driven science to thrive. 

Your philanthropy can help provide the freedom, space, funds and technology to transform our understanding of health and disease. 

From the moment we heard about the Crick, we were fascinated by its multidisciplinary approach, ambitious goals and ability to attract top global talent.

We hope that in our lifetime, brilliant humans will find cures to many diseases. We are at a truly exciting inflection point.
