£12.1m research centre to be built at St Thomas’ Hospital

Sick children and cancer patients will benefit from a new research centre at St Thomas’ Hospital after £12.1m of funding was announced last week, David Child writes.

A medical imaging research centre will be built at the hospital after the Wellcome Trust chose St Thomas’ as one of the hosts of fourteen major research centres to receive investment and prestigious Wellcome Centre status.

The Centre will see scientists from King’s College London working with clinicians from Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust using their research to help patients in Southwark and across the country.

Funding has been granted for the next five years, and research will begin in the new year.

Professor Reza Razavi, Director of the Centre, Paediatric Cardiologist at Evelina London and Professor of Paediatric Cardiovascular Science at King’s College London, said: “We are thrilled that our application was successful and the investment will make a huge difference to the research we can carry out, ultimately helping patients who will benefit from pioneering developments for better diagnosis and treatment guidance across a number of conditions.”
