Centres and collaborations

We work with funders to deliver major research centres and collaborations. Many of our centres are housed in one of our research divisions. Others are multi-disciplinary, and bring together multiple divisions. We also partner with other organisations, such as The Royal Marsden or Imperial College London.

Featured centres

  • Centre for Cancer Imaging

    The new Centre for Cancer Imaging will use cutting-edge imaging techniques to understand cancer’s development and response to treatment – as a means of accelerating the discovery of new therapies.

  • Centre for Evolution and Cancer

    The Centre for Evolution and Cancer is applying Charles Darwin’s principle of natural selection within ecosystems to our understanding of why we develop cancer and why it is so difficult to treat.

  • Centre for Global Oncology

    Our aim is to promote cancer research, training, fundraising and infrastructure building in low and middle income countries. The Centre for Global Oncology is a virtual research centre at the ICR and our partner hospital, The Royal Marsden.

Centres at the ICR

We draw upon our excellent scientists and facilities to further our world-class cancer research. Our centres cover a diverse range of fields, including: evolution, molecular biology and clinical trials.

Centres at the ICR

Partnerships with The Royal Marsden

The ICR works with The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust to take the results of our research into the clinic. Together, we aim to develop better treatments for cancer patients.
