Research at St George’s investigates and develops new, pioneering methods and treatments to improve health at a local, national and international level with a growing portfolio of collaborations in Asia, Europe, Africa and the Americas.

Recognised globally for the quality of its biomedical and clinical research, St George’s is home to three research institutes with talented researchers conducting a wide range of basic, clinical, translational and practice-based research.

Our research attracts support from major research funders including The Wellcome Trust, Medical Research Council, Department of Health, The European Union, National Institute of Health USA and The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

The Faculty of Health, Social Care and Education, a joint partnership with Kingston University, undertakes health and social care research that directly informs policy and practice.

Our close links with St George's Healthcare NHS Trust, one of the largest healthcare providers in south west London, provides opportunities for advanced medical research collaborations which translate into the highest national and international standards of patient care and clinical outcome.

We believe everyone should be able to access the benefits of biomedical discovery and that research should be an integral part of the training and education of healthcare professionals. We are committed to developing public understanding and involvement in our research programmes and have an active programme of public engagement.
