Sir Paul Nurse - The Francis Crick Institute: tackling the world's biggest health problems faster

The Francis Crick Institute (The Crick) conducts cutting-edge medical research to help find radical solutions to treat diagnose and prevent major illnesses such as cancer, heart disease and Alzheimer's.

Bringing together 1,250 researchers, The Crick conducts cutting-edge basic biological research to drive discoveries and improve the understanding of why disease develops and to find new ways to diagnose, prevent and treat a range of illnesses - such as cancer, heart disease and stroke, infections and neurodegenerative diseases.

On Wednesday 30 March 2016, SCI's Public Evening Lecture will invite us behind the scenes of The Francis Crick Institute. The lecture will be delivered by Sir Paul Nurse, Director of the Francis Crick Institute. Sir Paul, a former Nobel Prize winner and former President of the Royal Society, was integral to the establishment of The Crick. He will talk about The Francis Crick Institute and the cutting edge work being delivered to diagnose and prevent illnesses.
