Find a laboratory at the Crick.
Our nine-week summer student programme provides bright, ambitious undergraduates with hands-on experience of what it's like to work in a research lab.
We collaborate with local residents, community organisations and partners
Let us introduce you to the fly breeders, laser guiders, cell growers, tech fixers and even bottle washers that make the science happen. Visit our free exhibition for an eye-opening glimpse of the people behind the science.

Find out more about the key questions driving our research.
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.
