UCL @ the Crick


Events and Symposia

The Francis Crick Institute is dedicated to understanding the fundamental biology underlying health and disease. This state of the art biomedical research facility brings together 1500 scientists and support staff working collaboratively across disciplines and encourages both scientists and the general public to find out more about what goes on inside through a range of tours and seminars. UCL staff can also host their own events at the Crick


If you are a UCL staff member or student and would like to visit the Crick we can arrange a tour for you. They generally take place on Wednesday afternoons and we try to get a group together rather than organise on an individual basis so there may be a short wait before it happens. To let us know you're interested, email Crick enquiries from a UCL email address.
