Formed in 2002, the London Research Institute is based over 2 sites, and consists of 44 research groups, with 13 core technology facilities supporting the science.
The London Research Institute carries out world-class research to improve our understanding of cancer.
This is an exciting time for science. The strength of our research team means we are at the cutting edge of cancer biology. Furthermore, we place great emphasis on our training programmes for both postdoctoral fellows and graduate students. The LRI provides the perfect environment for developing and nurturing a scientific career.
The Institute has outstanding central research support facilities including large-scale cell culture, bioinformatics, mass spectrometry, electron and light microscopy and DNA sequence analysis. We're constantly working to ensure our research services provide the research groups with the best scientific support available.
The Institute is due to transfer to the Francis Crick Institute in 2015, which is an entirely new institute with a distinctive vision of how medical research should be conducted. The building is underway with appointed contractor, Laing O'Rourke, leading the works.
I hope you find the London Research Institute website both interesting and informative.
