The Wolfson Institute for Biomedical Research was established as an Institute within UCL for the pursuit of excellence in biomedical research. As part of UCL, the Institute belongs to one of the world's leading research bases in biomedicine.

The WIBR is currently home to around a dozen Principal Investigators, including established senior academics as well as a handful of  early-career scientists.  Collectively we hold more than £20M in grants from the European Research Council, MRC, BBSRC, Wellcome Trust and many other biomedical funding agencies, charitable foundations and industrial partners. The Institute has around 20 current PhD students and runs a one-year MSc in Drug Design.
