Where we are

We are located in the heart of the medieval city of Cambridge, 50 miles northeast of London. Our laboratory resides at the Sanger Building, in the centre of town, and is surrounded by historic Cambridge buildings and University Departments. We are associated with the Department of Biochemistry, and are also part of a wider scientific community that includes the Cancer Research UK Cambridge Research Institute, the MRC-LMB, the Cambridge Systems Biology Institute, CIMR, Babraham Institute, Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, European Bioinformatics Institute and the Cambridge Stem Cell Initiative. 

A direct train gets you from Cambridge into the centre of London within 45 minutes. London Stansted Airport, with its cheap airfares to destinations in Europe, is only 35 minutes away.

 The first scholars arrived in Cambridge as exiles from Oxford in the year 1209, and in 1326 the Bishop of Ely established Peterhouse as the first College in Cambridge. Somewhat more recently, the Department of Biochemistry was founded in 1924.
