Did you know that medical research is happening all over the Cambridge Biomedical Campus, though you probably won’t ever see it going on?!

But behind the scenes, researchers, scientists, doctors and nurses are working on important research to help sick people get better.

To help you visualise the stages involved, visit us during the Cambridge Festival and take part in our giant board puzzle with places to visit and clues to solve. Prizes for all puzzle-solvers!

The National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR) Cambridge Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) is based on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus and combines scientific research in world-class institutes, patient care in NHS hospitals and drug discovery in pharmaceutical companies including AstraZeneca and GlaxoSmithKline.

The BRC reaches out to scientists on the Biomedical Campus and beyond to ensure that their discoveries are pulled into the NHS, where clinical researchers can use them, in partnership with the life sciences industry, to improve health.
