Culture of the Institute

The Institute currently houses over 450 clinical and non-clinical scientific, technical and support staff from all over the world.  We currently have visiting scientists and students from more than 24 countries.  


Several Groups in the Institute have strong links with laboratories elsewhere in the UK and overseas. There are numerous collaborations with groups in Europe and the USA. There are also joint projects with teams in Kenya, South Africa, the Gambia, Thailand, Vietnam, China and Sri Lanka. 

The Institute has a vibrant academic and social atmosphere which benefits from a large central interaction area and excellent catering facilities.
