Research and Innovation Hub in Cancer

UKRPIF award: £15 million
Officially opened: June 2016

The Research and Innovation Hub is located within the £160m Cancer Centre at Guy’s Hospital, which opened in September 2016.

The hub provides open-plan laboratory space to support collaboration between researchers and clinicians and enable translational research into cancer and its causes through analysing patient conditions, developing personalised medicine and introducing new treatments through research-led trials.

The UK Research Partnership Investment Fund (UKRPIF) award supported construction of the new research facilities, including 6 laboratories with specialist research equipment and a cancer biobank for storing patient tissue samples. Double match funding for the project included a £25m investment from the Guy’s and St Thomas’ Trust.
