The Innovation Gateway

The Innovation Gateway is a new high-quality incubator space for life-science companies, at the heart of The London Cancer Hub in Sutton, South London – a partnership led by The Institute of Cancer Research and the London Borough of Sutton.

The Innovation Gateway represents a major step forward in realising The London Cancer Hub’s vision of becoming the world’s leading district for cancer research, treatment and commercial enterprise.


Facilities on site

At Sutton, the Innovation Gateway offers state-of-the-art laboratory equipment, offices and other facilities to a wide range of companies in the life sciences – including potentially the ICR’s new £75m Centre for Cancer Drug Discovery, which is only metres away.

The site contains around 6,300 square feet of space, of which about 3,500 square feet is set to be new laboratories.

Partnerships and collaborations

Occupiers of the Innovation Gateway will also have opportunities to collaborate with world-leading academic researchers at the ICR. We are already one of the top academic institutions in the world in partnering with industry, currently working with more than 100 companies – from small biotech and medtech firms to big pharma.

In collaboration with The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust, we also run one of the world’s largest and most successful centres for phase I clinical trials – leading around 50 early-stage trials of novel drugs at any one time, with many in collaboration with industry.
