Supporting translational research

The CRUK Imperial Centre was established to help accelerate the translation of lab-based researched and discoveries into the clinical setting so that the scientific research undertaken at Imperial College London can directly benefit cancer patients. To this end, the CRUK Imperial Centre is focused on developing research at the convergence of the life, clinical, engineering and physical sciences. With two broad themes – Reducing the Burden of Cancer and Increasing the Precision of Cancer Treatments – the mission of the CRUK Centre is to develop novel technologies and methodologies that address challenges in the prevention, detection and treatment of cancer.

If you would like to discuss your translational research project and ideas, or how the CRUK Imperial Centre might be able to help facilitate your research, please contact our Translational Research Funding Manager, Dr Mark Gurden (m.gurden@imperial.ac.uk).
