Imperial College London

Imperial College London is a science-based university with a reputation for excellence and impact that is consistently rated among the world's best.

Imperial's research explores the interface between science, medicine, engineering and business, delivering practical solutions that improve quality of life and the environment, underpinned by a dynamic enterprise culture.

Since its foundation in 1907, Imperial's contributions to society have included the discovery of penicillin and the foundations of fibre optics. Its commitment to the application of research for the benefit of all continues today, with focuses including interdisciplinary collaborations to tackle climate change, and mathematical modelling to control the spread of infectious diseases.

Imperial's partnership with Crick will provide access to bespoke research facilities, technology innovation, a multidisciplinary approach to research and training, and an entrepreneurial culture based on a strong track record in technology transfer and forging relationships with industry.

Imperial West - a new 25 acre research and innovation district in White City, west London - and the College's Academic Health Science Centre will offer the Crick valuable opportunities for translation and collaborations with the NHS and industry.

Imperial's translation expertise along with strengths in medical research, physical sciences and engineering will all contribute to realising the Crick's vision.
