The Francis Crick Institute’s new exhibition, Craft & Graft: Making Science Happen, showcases the surprising roles of the people who work around the clock to make its life-changing research possible.

The free exhibition, which opens on 1 March 2019 until 30 November 2019, takes visitors behind the scenes to meet the technicians, engineers and specialists supporting science at Europe’s biggest biomedical research institute under one roof.

These technical teams prepare, process, make, mend, analyse and innovate. From fixing faults in complex cutting-edge technology to feeding fruit flies and operating robots, these individuals are essential to keep the labs running and science happening.
