Enrich human lives

What we will do next:

Enrich human lives

The world needs answers to the diseases that damage and destroy human lives. The rare genetic disorders of childhood. The intractable cancers of adulthood. The memory-stealing diseases of old age. Cambridge is the best- placed medical research epicentre in Europe, and our researchers are at the forefront of advances in global healthcare. We move swiftly to turn scientific breakthroughs into effective treatments. Together, we will deliver longer, healthier, happier lives for everyone.
