Staff from the Francis Crick Institute will start moving into our new building at St Pancras this summer. During 2016 we will not be hiring out our auditorium or seminar suite to external organisations. This will be reviewed in 2017, once we have a complete understanding of our own requirements and use of these spaces. More information will be provided on our website in 2017.
Please note that the Francis Crick Institute will not be open at its St Pancras location until summer 2016.
The Medical Research Council's National Institute for Medical Research and Cancer Research UK's London Research Institute (at Lincoln's Inn Fields and Clare Hall) became part of the Francis Crick Institute on 1 April 2015.
Researchers from these institutes transferred to the Crick but will remain based at their existing locations until they move into the new institute at St Pancras in 2016.
To contact individual researchers please visit their Research pages.
This is where we will be based until the Crick's St Pancras site opens in summer 2016:
Site Security office, Ossulston Street, London, NW1 1HG
Nearest tube and train stations: King's Cross St Pancras, Euston

The Francis Crick Institute Visitor Centre is on the Ossulston Street side of the construction site (behind the British Library - see map below). The Visitor Centre is now based in the ground floor of the Living Centre, the community space on the Ossulston Street side of the Crick. Please note that as the Crick is not yet open, there is no access to the rest of the institute.
You are welcome to come along to find out more about the institute and the progress on construction. Models of the building are on display and staff are on hand to answer questions. Unfortunately you cannot go into the rest of the institute whilst it is still under construction.
Regular opening hours
Thursdays: 2pm - 6.30pm (please pop in at any time)
The Visitor Centre will be open until 5pm on 21/04/16
Please note: As the Crick is not yet open, there is no access to the rest of the institute.
