Francis Crick Institute receives £3 million grant

June 2013

The Francis Crick Institute, the largest biomedical research building in Europe, has been awarded £3m from the Wolfson Foundation. Cancer Research UK are now celebrating being more than a third of the way towards their £100 million target, with the Institute's topping out ceremony taking place today (Thursday 6th June) at the site in King's Cross, London.

The Francis Crick Institute is a partnership between the UK's three largest funders of biomedical research: the Medical Research Council, Cancer Research UK and the Wellcome Trust, and three universities: UCL, Imperial College and King's College London. Opening in 2015, The Crick's main goal is to use the combined skills of scientists working on major diseases so that patients can benefit from new discoveries as quickly as is possible.
