Coronavirus: research appointments update

In response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, we are asking you not to attend any face to face research related appointments, unless you have been advised otherwise by your research team. Where appropriate our research teams will contact you to conduct research follow up by telephone.


We have an international reputation for undertaking pioneering clinical research.

Our focus is on improving your care, developing better treatments and increasing our understanding of disease.

We are part of King’s Health Partners, one of only six academic health science centres in England, and our National Institute for Health Research Biomedical Research Centre leads the way in translational research and innovation. 

We are also part of the ground-breaking 100,000 Genomes Project that aims to decode the DNA sequences of 100,000 genomes from people who have a rare disease or condition, their families, and people with cancer.
