Academic health science partnerships
We're part of King's Health Partners, 1 of 8 UK Academic Health Science Centres. Together with King's College London, South London and Maudsley and King's College Hospital, we're pioneering better health for all.
King's Health Partners' major research and innovation programmes include:
- obesity and endocrinology
- women and children’s
- mind and body
Through Royal Brompton and Harefield hospitals, we also work closely with Imperial College London.
Our National Institute for Health and Care Research Biomedical Research Centre at Guy's and St Thomas' and King's College London plays a vital role in helping us to translate scientific breakthroughs into improved healthcare. It is one of only 22 such research centres in the country and the only NHS-managed clinical research facility in London accredited by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).
We host south London’s Heath Innovation Network, one of 15 national Academic Health Science Networks. These networks connect NHS and academic organisations, local authorities, the third sector and industry, aiming to increase the spread and adoption of innovation across large populations. Through Royal Brompton and Harefield hospitals, we're also part of Imperial College Health Partners Academic Health Science Network.
We lead the South London Genomic Medicine Centre. This is responsible for the delivery of the 100,000 Genomes Project across South London, Kent, Surrey and Sussex, as well as the transformation of genomic medicine services.
Research is vital to improving the care that we all receive when we're unwell.
Our researchers work to improve patient care and develop new and better ways to prevent, diagnose and treat diseases.
