Faculty of Life Sciences & Medicine

Located across four central London campuses, the Faculty of Life Sciences and Medicine is one of the largest and most successful centres for research and education in the UK.

Through connections with London's world-leading research institutes, teaching hospitals and collaborations with higher education institutions, the faculty provides an unrivalled learning experience and research infrastructure for its staff and students.

Key London priorities for the faculty:

  • To establish the London Medical Imaging and Artificial Intelligence Centre for Value-Based Healthcare.
  • To collaborate with the Mayor’s Office on air quality research in London.

Current initiatives include:

  • King's College London, in partnership with Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust, has been awarded £16m UKRPIF funding to establish The London Institute for Healthcare Engineering.
  • new study by King's scientists is monitoring the air quality exposure of London school children on their way to school and in the classroom.
  • The London Medical Imaging and AI Centre for Value-Based Healthcare will use advanced imaging and AI technologies to optimise patient care and hospital operations in London and beyond.
  • London’s diverse population and world-class health infrastructure makes King’s a leading global centre for sickle cell disease research. Working in partnership with patients and connecting the clinical strengths of the NHS with King’s research capability ensures London has unrivalled expertise in the management and care of sickle cell disease.
  • King’s academics are working in partnership to analyse how social challenges impact children’s health conditions. Through the Children & Young People’s Health Partnership (CYPHP) we are changing how the NHS responds to healthcare needs by taking a holistic approach and assessing children’s physical, mental and emotional health alongside social, school and family circumstances.
