Centre for Inflammation Biology and Cancer Immunology
The guiding mission of the Centre for Inflammation Biology and Cancer Immunology (CIBCI) is to be an internationally prominent centre of excellence focused on enhancing our fundamental and applied knowledge of inflammation biology, tumour immunobiology, and their bearing upon each other.
CIBCI aspires to provide new insights into the understanding, diagnosis and treatment of inflammation, its associated pathologies, and its contribution to tumour immunobiology.Our collective aim is to identify key mechanisms and pathways underlying inflammation and cancer and to open new opportunities to innovative treatment of human disease.

Located on the first floor of New Hunt's House, Guy’s Campus, the interdisciplinary programme of CIBCI brings together researchers working on inflammation biology, immunobiology, genetics and treatment of disease, invertebrates and non-vertebrates. Our researchers, develop and exploit cutting-edge models and tools, both experimental and computational, in close collaboration with colleagues within the School of Immunology & Microbial Sciences and wider King’s faculty.
We aim to foster a collaborative environment that will extend beyond our School and will stimulate interactions between all who work in inflammation biology and/or cancer immunology across the King’s faculty, and foster collaborative research projects opening new opportunities for education and research grant funding.
The Centre accommodates a large open plan wet laboratory, adjacent cell culture rooms, a chemical room, a post PCR suite, flow-cytometry cell sorting and acquisition facilities, fly and rodent holding suites, an imaging suite for microscopic imaging in vivo, and a bioinformatics suite. The Centre also has open plan office space adjacent to dedicated PI offices.
