The success of the UK DRI depends on the people in it. The institute is structured so that its researchers are connected, wherever their labs are based. Ideas, tools, technologies and data will flow between the UK DRI teams.
Having centres located across the UK allows the UK DRI to bring people together for shared scientific inspiration, whilst making the most of cutting-edge tools and infrastructure locally.
Each centre has an associate director, and every person working in the UK DRI contributes towards achieving the institute’s shared vision. Care research will also be integrated at the institute in 2018.
The six universities that make up the UK DRI are: University of Cambridge, Cardiff University, University of Edinburgh, Imperial College London, King’s College London and UCL. The hub of the institute activity and operational headquarters of the UK DRI is based at UCL.
