The Cambridge Institute for Medical Research is a cross-Department research institute.  Part of the University of Cambridge School of Clinical Medicine , CIMR is located in a dedicated research building on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus.

At the interface between laboratory research and the clinic, CIMR’s mission is to determine the molecular mechanisms of disease in order to advance human health. To achieve this, we leverage deep collaborations between basic and clinician scientists, built on shared interests, outstanding core facilities and an inclusive, supportive working environment.

Rare diseases under the microscope

Researchers at the Cambridge Institute for Medical Research use microscopy and other laboratory methods to uncover the molecular mechanisms of rare diseases inside human cells. Learn more about this research at our interactive stand.

At CIMR we’re pleased to be taking part in RAREfest 2022 to learn more about the perspectives of people affected by rare diseases, and to show how our research can illuminate the underlying causes of such conditions.
