MRC Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine (MRC WIMM)
The MRC Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine (MRC WIMM) at the University of Oxford was founded in 1989 by Sir David Weatherall to foster research in molecular and cell biology, with the aim of improving human health. Through excellent basic and applied research they have become leaders in translational medicine. Their research has resulted in improved understanding, diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of human diseases.
The Institute hosts staff and students from seven different departments within the Medical Sciences Division. They bring together over 500 researchers, staff and students with a passion for translational science and who share an interest in their five core research areas: rare diseases, haematology, immunology and infection, stem cells and developmental biology and cancer biology. They host two MRC Units (MRC Human Immunology Unit and MRC Molecular Haematology Unit) and have recently established a new MRC WIMM Centre for Computational Biology.See more
