The mission of the MRC Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine (WIMM) is to undertake internationally competitive research into the processes underlying normal cell and molecular biology and to determine the mechanisms by which these processes are perturbed in inherited and acquired human diseases. It is also our mission to translate this research to improve human health. The WIMM is uniquely placed among biomedical institutes throughout the world in its pioneering vision of combining outstanding clinical research with excellent basic science. The WIMM Faculty currently includes an equal mixture of scientists and clinicians working together and in collaboration with the National Institute of Health Research, the NHS and commercial companies with the aim of improving the diagnosis and treatment of human diseases. The major topics of current research include haematology, immunology, stem cell biology, oncology and inherited human genetic diseases.
The Institute values communication with members of the broader scientific community and the general public and with the support of the MRC we have commissioned three short videos to explain our mission.
The Swedish Royal Academy for Sciences has announced that Sten Eirik Jacobsen has been awarded the Tobias Prize for 2014, “for groundbreaking scientific contributions to the field of haematopoiesis, particularly with respect to identifying factors that regulate the maturation process of haematopoietic stem cells, factors of great importance for successfully transplanting stem cells”. The Tobias Prize is a Nordic Prize awarded every second ...
