The Francis Crick Institute opens in November and will eventually house 1,600 biomedical scientists. It is a partnership between six scientific institutions and aims to understand why disease develops. It is to find new ways to treat, diagnose and prevent illnesses such as cancer, heart disease, stroke, infections, and neurodegenerative diseases.
