Biomedical Research Centre for Cancer
As a National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) BRC our aim is to drive pioneering research into the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer, and to translate advances in biomedical research into patient benefits.
In 2006 The Royal Marsden NHS foundation Trust and the ICR were awarded £10m per year as one of the original 11 Biomedical Research Centres. The award followed a competitive international peer review process, in which The Royal Marsden and the ICR were the only BRC applicant to have over 10% of the top-cited research papers in oncology. The grant was renewed for a further 5 years in 2011.
