The Hamlyn Centre has three main sites within the College - located at the Bessemer Building (Levels 4 and 5, South Kensington Campus), Patterson Building (Level 3, St Mary’s Campus), and Imperial College Medical School - for addressing engineering, clinical, and pre-clinical programmes respectively.
The Centre has a range of laboratories (lablets) specifically aligned to the strategic research themes of the Centre. The infrastructure and equipment within each laboratory is funded through generous donation and equipment grants by the Wolfson Foundation, National Institute of Health Research (NIHR), Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and the Royal Society.
Hamlyn Centre Research Facilities
Located at the South Kensington campus, this facility enables the design, fabrication and testing of precision components for our imaging, sensing and robotics research platforms, in addition to providing high-performance computing and micro-nano manufacturing facilities.
The Hamlyn Centre Clinical Facility is located on the 3rd floor of the Patterson Centre at St. Mary's Hospital in Paddington, London. It provides a unique setting for the translation of technologies developed at the Centre into a clinical environment, ensuring that technology is patient-focused, clinically relevant, practical and accessible.
The Hamlyn Centre Pre-Clinical Facility is located within the Imperial College Medical School in London. The facility allows for the development of early-stage technologies as a precursor to their introduction into a clinical setting. The facility includes a dedicated, state-of-the-art imaging and intervention suite for pre-clinical research and surgical device/robot validation.
