New Biomedical Research Centre Director

Professor Matthew Brown has been appointed Director of our Biomedical Research Centre.


The Centre aims to transform scientific breakthroughs into life-saving treatments for patients. It is funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) and is a partnership between Guy’s and St Thomas’ and King’s College London.


Professor Brown’s research focuses on turning genetic discoveries into treatments for diseases including arthritis and cancer. He says: “I am delighted to have the opportunity to lead the NIHR Guy’s and St Thomas’ Biomedical Research Centre, and hope to build on its impressive research successes.”
