Two researchers in discussion in lab

Clinical fellows

Opportunities for clinicians to develop their research careers at the Crick.


Clinical fellows have the opportunity to work in a vibrant and inspiring environment encompassing one of the world's largest physical groupings of biomedical researchers.
Peter Ratcliffe, Clinical Research Director

We have two programmes for clinicians in training to come to the Crick at different stages of their research career. They are embedded in a research group, benefit from all the facilities and collaborations the Crick has to offer and work alongside scientists who are not clinically qualified.

Together with our partners, this helps us achieve our aim of creating the scientific leaders of the future and accelerates the movement of research ideas out of the lab and into clinical practice.

To ensure that our clinicians can maintain links to clinical training and receive clinical mentorship, clinical fellows may be associated with external partners. 

This could be with one of our partner universities (UCL, Imperial College London and King's College London), with other universities, or with NIHR biomedical research centres and Cancer Research UK (CRUK) centres. We're part of the CRUK City of London Centre, which offers multidisciplinary cancer-based doctoral clinical fellowships as part of its training programme.
