West Wing Clinical Research Centre

The £2.6million West Wing Clinical Research Centre opened in 2014 for patients on clinical trials and includes treatment bays, consulting rooms, a biopsy suite, a dedicated on-site laboratory and a pharmacy room.

West Wing Clinical Research Centre has enabled day care patients on early-phase and late-phase clinical trials to be brought together into one space. Previously patients on late-phase studies would be seen in various departments around the hospital, whereas now trial patients can come to one area of the hospital. 

The centre enables the rapid and effective translation of scientific findings regarding the genetic and molecular basis of cancer into improved targeted therapies, which is central to our personalised medicine strategy.

From September 2022 West Wing Clinical Research Centre has been awarded NIHR Clinical Research Facility status and has become part of the UK CRF Network

As the only NIHR Biomedical Research Centre dedicated solely to cancer, The Royal Marsden and The Institute of Cancer Research are together able to develop novel technologies and therapies for patients based on the latest ground-breaking science in basic and applied cancer research.

This research strategy is underpinned by heavy investment in leading-edge equipment, facilities and imaging technologies, keeping us at the forefront of cancer research and, ultimately, patient care. West Wing Clinical Research Centre is an example of the constant investment in our research infrastructure.
