This year we were honoured to welcome Sir Paul Nurse, Chief Executive and Director of the Francis Crick Institute.  

Sir Paul is a geneticist, cell biologist and former President of The Royal Society. He is a Nobel Prize winner and Legion d’Honneur recipient.

He shared his views on biomedical research and spoke about the origins and work of the Crick Institute, as well as its vision for the future.

With 1300 scientists and 120 research groups, the Crick Institute is a partnership between six institutions: the Medical Research Council, Cancer Research UK, Wellcome Trust, UCL (University College London), Imperial College London and King’s College London.

Sir Paul also spoke about the need for strong public involvement and engagement in the work of the Crick, and the importance of the best recruitment from across the world.
