The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust (RM) is recognised world-wide for the quality of its cancer services. The Trust’s strategic aim is to achieve excellence in cancer treatment and diagnosis, through partnership and collaboration. The Royal Marsden and its academic partner, The Institute of Cancer Research (ICR) together have over 4,500 scientific, clinical and nursing staff working or studying with us.  Our joint research strategy sets out to maintain and strengthen this unique partnership in order to enhance cancer research.


The NIHR Specialist Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) for Cancer is based at the Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust (RM) and The Institute of Cancer Research (ICR), which together form the largest Comprehensive Cancer Centre in Europe. Our BRC’s excellence in biomedical research and experimental medicine, together with our strategic partnerships with industry, cancer charities and NIHR infrastructure, ensure that we can translate scientific advances about cancer into real benefit for patients. We aim to deliver improved targeted therapies for all cancer patients through personalised and stratified treatment specific to individual genetic, molecular and functional characteristics.


In 2006 RM and ICR were awarded £10m per year as one of the original 12 NIHR BRCs. The award followed a competitive international peer review process. In 2011 we were re-awarded NIHR BRC status, with over £12m funding received per year, and remain the only BRC specialising in cancer.
