National Centre for Mesothelioma Research

NCMR Deputy Director Prof Miriam Moffatt talks about mesothelioma, its causes and its occurrence in the UK.

Why a centre?


The Centre represents a collaborative structure based at the National Heart and Lung Institute, Imperial College London, alongside The Royal Brompton and Royal Marsden NHS Trusts, and the Institute for Cancer Research.

By creating a designated research unit within NHLI and Imperial College we can focus on targetted research that works towards better treatment, but the Centre extends beyond these institutions to include national and international collaborators. Read more about our collaborators.

The Centre is integrated with and draws from existing clinical and patient networks in the UK, with patient and family involvement central to all aspects of the Centre.
