The NIHR Imperial Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) is a translational research partnership between Imperial College London and Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust.
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.
