Cambridge Institute for Medical Research



We believe for science and research to have the greatest benefit and impact it must be integrated with and informed by modern medicine and modern society. Therefore:

  • Across the Institute and with strong leadership from our Director, we continually champion and seek out new and innovative ways to engage the public and patients in and with our research, so both are positively impacted and to connect our science with wider society. 
  • The Institute is situated at the heart of the Cambridge Biomedical Campus with strong, well established links to the wider Cambridge research community, thriving life sciences sector and the internationally renowned Cambridge University Hospitals group that includes the world-class teaching hospitals and research centres, Addenbrooke’s and Papworth.
