The Crick is breaking down barriers between basic and clinical research by supporting collaboration and the sharing of ideas, bringing more clinical expertise to the Crick and offering truly interdisciplinary training to scientists and clinicians.
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 also part of the CRUK City of London Centre, which offers multidisciplinary cancer-based doctoral clinical fellowships as part of its training programme.
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.
