About Us

The NIHR funds, enables and delivers world-leading health and social care research that improves people’s health and wellbeing and promotes economic growth.

NIHR Biomedical Research Centres (BRCs) are collaborations between NHS organisations and universities. They bring together academics and clinicians to translate scientific discoveries into potential new treatments, diagnostics and technologies.”

The NIHR Imperial Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) is a part of the NIHR and hosted by Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust in partnership with Imperial College London.

It provides the infrastructure – human and technological – to conduct early stage experimental medicine within our Academic Health Science Centre. The BRC aims to exploit the scientific power of the College’s Faculties of Medicine, Engineering and Natural Sciences, and provide proof-of-principle of new breakthroughs within the clinical setting. We collaborate extensively with industry, other funding agencies, and with colleagues across the NIHR infrastructure. Our patients and volunteers are closely involved in the design and delivery of research, and the BRC invests heavily in skills and training for the clinical academics of tomorrow.
