Comprehensive Cancer Centre

 

Our centre

Our Comprehensive Cancer Centre headed by Professor Tony Ng is the academic arm of one of the leading cancer centres in Europe. King's Health Partners' Comprehensive Cancer Centre brings together world-class clinical services, delivered by our NHS partners, research and education for the benefit of cancer patients in south east London and beyond.

Our research

In addition to the individual research programmes, we have identified four research priorities, working at the clinical / non-clinical interface and across multiple-disciplines to answer questions that will ultimately provide solutions for patient care. These priorities integrate, complement and draw expertise from members of our distinguished team of academics, who have been recognised for their outstanding work in the field of Cancer research.

We are committed to training future researchers and currently have over 80 students studying for a PhD in the Centre. We also run a very successful MRes in Translational Cancer Medicine.
