We collaborate with local residents, community organisations and partners
Our priority is the safety of everyone at the Crick. We are closed to visitors, and staff are encouraged to work from home wherever possible.
Crick researchers are working at the forefront of the scientific response to answer some of the most urgent questions about the SARS-CoV-2 pathogen, from how we can improve testing, to why it’s deadly in some people but causes no symptoms in others.
The Francis Crick Institute is working at the forefront of the scientific response to coronavirus, volunteering expertise and facilities to help tackle the COVID-19 pandemic.
We support research groups at the Crick by synthesising, peptides, peptide arrays and small molecules for use in experiments to study how biomolecules such as proteins interact with each other.
We make peptides for Crick researchers for use in experiments to study how biomolecules such as proteins interact with each other.
We synthesise small molecules, such as enzyme inhibitors, modified nucleotides and cross-linking agents by solution phase chemistry techniques.
Many protein-protein interactions can be studied using a synthetic peptide as one of the partners. We make peptide arrays on cellulose membranes, which can be probed by an interacting protein to allow the study of molecular recognition events.
Medicinal chemists at the Crick can offer guidance on best practice in chemical probe synthesis, selection, evaluation and use for testing a biological hypothesis.
