About the Rosalind Franklin Institute
The RFI is a new national institute, announced in 2017 by the UK government, dedicated to bringing about

transformative changes in life science through interdisciplinary research and technology development.

The namesake of the institute, the pioneering X-ray crystallographer Rosalind Franklin, was one of the key figures in the discovery of the structure of DNA, and used a technique with roots in physics and technology to transform life science. The Institute will follow in this spirit, developing unique new techniques and tools and applying them for the first time to biological problems. It will operate on a ‘hub and spoke’ basis: the central hub, at Harwell, will house a unique portfolio of scientific tools and researchers from both industry and academia. Equipment and researchers will also be located in spokes distributed across the partner network of HEIs (which includes Oxford).
