Meet a scientist virtually

Our Meet a Scientist sessions normally take place in person in our gallery. While the Crick is closed to visitors, we've moved the events online and run them through our Instagram account.

Introduction

Meet a Scientist.

Crick scientists are taking to Instagram Stories to share behind-the-scenes insights into daily life as a research scientist, how they got to where they are today, and the big research questions that get them out of bed in the morning.

Bring your curiosity, submit a question and tune in over on our Instagram account where we post the questions and responses!
