‘I am delighted at the faith put in me to help the Crick develop further as a world-leading research institution, and in so doing, to strengthen London's place as a preeminent centre for innovation and training. To do this, we should make more of the immense synergies that can follow from the unique relationship between the Crick and its founders, including King's College London’.
