The Rosalind Franklin Institute is dedicated to transforming life science through interdisciplinary research and technology development

About The Rosalind Franklin Institute

The Rosalind Franklin Institute is a national research institute dedicated to developing new technologies to tackle important health research challenges. The spectrum of tools under development at the Franklin are individually extraordinary, but when combined at the Franklin’s Hub, they allow us to develop tomorrow’s healthcare innovations. Find out more about us.

Our technologies will enable the ‘imaging of life in five dimensions’ – that is, to see the molecules of life in the context of three-dimensional space, along with time and chemistry. We are currently focusing our multi-disciplinary research teams and technologies in development to the grand challenge problem of infection and the body’s response to it.
