National Heart and Lung Institute (1988 - )

The National Heart and Lung Institute is a division of the Faculty of Medicine at Imperial College London. It was established in 1988 but can trace its origins to three major London hospitals established in the mid-1800s: the Royal Brompton Hospital (1841); The London Chest Hospital (1848) and the National Heart Hospital (1857). The research arms which developed for these hospitals formally merged in 1973 and became the National Heart and Lung Institute in 1988. In 1995 the Institute became part of Imperial College London and in 1997 it became part of the newly-formed Imperial College School of Medicine.
