Work commences at revamped Francis Crick Institute

6th September 2016

The government has announced that the first scientists have moved in and commenced work at the revamped Francis Crick Institute in London.

Backed by 350 million pounds of government investment, the advanced medical research facility will become fully operational next year and support 1,250 scientists in their work to understand the biological processes behind illnesses such as cancer, stroke and motor neurone disease.

The building is 170 metres long and covers one million sq ft of floor space, with facilities including a cutting-edge electron microscopy department that allows for detailed studies of biological structures.

Around 250 workers will be on hand to support the science staff, who are coming from the recent merger between the Medical Research Council's National Institute for Medical Research and Cancer Research UK's London Research Institute.

It will also be open to members of the public next year thanks to its dedicated public space, which includes a gallery, cafe and 450-seat auditorium. A schools outreach programme is planned to help engage local state school pupils.

Health secretary Jeremy Hunt said: "The institute will help to underpin new research into disease prevention, diagnosis and new treatments that will ultimately bring huge benefits to NHS patients."
