Applications for the 2020 intake to the Crick Interest Groups are now closed.

Staff from the College have the opportunity to join one or more Interest Groups at the Francis Crick Institute as an Associate Member.

The Crick Interest Groups were developed to bring together scientists working on diverse biological systems, with many different complementary sets of expertise, to understand how these processes are regulated in health, and how their breakdown can result in diverse diseases. The aim of the Interest Groups is to enhance scientific discussion by strengthening existing interactions and promoting new links within and across the different Interest Groups.

There are currently eight formal Interest Groups at the Crick:

  • Cancer
  • Cell Biology and Signalling
  • Chromosome Biology
  • Development and Stem Cells
  • Immunology
  • Infections
  • Neuroscience
  • Structural and Chemical Biology 

Associate Membership also provides access to the internal seminar series with presentations from PhD students, Postdocs and other lab members of their work in progress. Becoming an Associate Member of a Crick Interest Group provides a unique and exciting opportunity to share diverse knowledge and ideas at an early stage thereby promoting collaboration and accelerating discovery.

The external seminar series is open to a wider audience where events are advertised on the Crick's external website and feature external speakers. 

More information on this opportunity can be found on the 'Interest group seminars' page of the Crick website.

Any queries can be directed to the Imperial Crick team.
