The Founder and Emeritus Scientific Director of NPIMR , Colin Green, is delighted to report that after 25 years since it opened in 1994, NPIMR has been supported so generously by the philanthropist John Griffin that it can build up on past achievements and expand its programmes in research and training. He is pleased that it is to be rebranded The Griffin Institute. The CEO of the Institute, Alison Rosen, announced the rebranding publicly today as follows:
‘It gives me great pleasure to announce the rebrand of Northwick Park Institute for Medical Research as The Griffin Institute. This is in no small measure and tribute, in honour of, John Griffin, our Honorary President, who has funded our new state of the art laboratories and offices providing a fantastic environment for the sharing of ideas and bringing together specialist scientists from all over the world.
We remain, a not-for-profit, charitable research institute with a vision to transform and restore patient quality of life and an ambition to be a leader in biomedical research and training. 2019 has seen a time of great change, we have a visionary Board headed up by Professor Robin Kennedy as well as a new professional Directorate including Professor Nader Francis, Director of Training and Professor Jia Hua, Director of Science. Our aim is to create innovative clinical solutions underpinned by compelling science and to train the next generation of medical professionals.
We will be obtaining grants to continue and expand research on regenerative medicine, wound healing and orthopaedics. We will be increasing our preclinical contract research where we can offer both our skilled surgeons and GLP facilities, and we will be expanding the training we offer, in particular looking to establish a cadaver unit to complement our facilities.
