Kennedy Institute of Rheumatology Division

The Kennedy Institute of Rheumatology Division of the Faculty of Medicine at Imperial College London is based at the Arthritis Research Campaign building on the Charing Cross Campus. It was founded in 1965/66 with a donation of 500,000 by Terence and Mathilda Kennedy.
The institute originally occupied a site in Bute Gardens next to the West London Hospital in Hammersmith and was the first research institute in the world totally dedicated to Rheumatology. In 1992, the KIR acquired the Sunley Research Centre at Charing Cross Hospital and, following refurbishment and building of a new wing, relocated there in April 1997. In 2000 the KIR was incorporated into Imperial College as a separate division of Imperial College School of Medicine.
