UCL (University College London)

UCL is London's global university, located close to the Francis Crick Institute in one of the world's most dynamic cities. Founded in 1826, it is a research and teaching powerhouse, focused on the translation of research to address the world's biggest challenges.

UCL School of Life and Medical Sciences (SLMS) brings together four faculties to create one of the largest and most prestigious centres for life, medical, brain and population health sciences. SLMS fosters a truly multidisciplinary approach, working in close collaboration with UCL's Faculties of Maths and Physical Sciences and Engineering to respond to real world issues.

UCL is also a founding partner of UCLPartners, an accredited academic health science system established to harness academia to improve population health, in London, nationally and beyond. Drawing together academic strengths and prestigious partner hospitals, UCLPartners' objective is to enable new discoveries in basic science to be translated into treatments more quickly; delivering proven innovation into practice at scale, both to improve patient and population health outcomes, and to generate wealth for the nation.
