Guy's and St Thomas' and King's College London have a long tradition of significant medical breakthroughs and the development of new treatments. For example, we pioneered cataract surgery, use the latest imaging techniques, participated in the Herceptin clinical trials and created the UK's first stem cell lines.
Situated in south east London surrounded by diverse populations, the world is on our doorstep and our research will have a global impact.
As organisations within King's Health Partners, we have a long history of collaboration in conducting clinical trials. NHS and academic clinicians recruit NHS patients and volunteers into a variety of local and international trials on behalf of pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies and conduct or contribute to academic-led trials. Together, with our strategic partners, we present a strong clinical-academic interface, spearhead world class clinical research, underpinned by cutting edge research facilities and a large patient base.
The Joint Clinical Trials Office was set up as an initiative between King’s College London, Guy’s and St Thomas’, King’s College Hospital and South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trusts to develop our clinical trials potential and to increase the quality and delivery of clinical research activity. This initiative builds on our common commitment to strategic investment in translational research and aligns us with the Department of Health’s initiatives that seek to increase the involvement of NHS staff and patients in health research and to increase industry investment in clinical research in the UK.
Staff working within our NIHR Biomedical Research Centre can call upon both the University’s and NHS’s technology transfer arms (King's Business and the Trust's corporate development team).
