NIMR is a research institute dedicated to studying important questions about the life processes that are relevant to all aspects of health. The Institute is the largest supported by the Medical Research Council (MRC).
Research covers a broad spectrum of basic biomedical science, including infectious diseases, immunology, cell and developmental biology, neuroscience and structural biology.
There is a major emphasis on cross-disciplinary interactions, stemming from the pervasive culture of collaboration and strategic recruitment to complement and bridge scientific areas.
In 2015 the Institute will become part of the new Francis Crick Institute.
