UK map showing LondonWe support over 40 research groups at the Cancer Research UK London Research Institute (CRUK LRI), in two locations:

  • Lincoln's Inn Fields Laboratories in Central London
  • Clare Hall Laboratories at South Mimms in Hertfordshire

 The CRUK LRI specialises in research to understand how normal cells in the body become cancers. This knowledge will provide the foundation for developing new and more effective ways of preventing and treating the disease.

University College London, Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry and Imperial College are home to three of our Cancer Research UK Centres. The Centres will increase the pace of research and improve the lives of people with cancer across London. 

Researchers at the UCL Centre are focusing on brain tumours, ovarian, lung and blood cancers. The Barts Centre also concentrates on blood cancers such as leukaemia, as well as men's and women's cancers including cervical and testicular cancer. Researchers at the Imperial Centre have a particular interest in breast, bowel and prostate cancer. You can find out more about the London Centres on our website.

Cancer Research UK also provides substantial funding to The Institute of Cancer Research (ICR), one of the world's leading cancer research organisations. The ICR works in partnership with the Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust and has two sites, the Chester Beatty Laboratories in Chelsea and the Haddow Laboratories in Sutton.

Below are some of the highlights of our research in London.
