Institute of Cancer Research

The Institute of Cancer Research, London, is one of the world’s most influential cancer research institutes, with an outstanding record of achievement dating back more than 100 years. Scientists and clinicians at the ICR are working every day to make a real impact on cancer patients’ lives.

Today, we are ranked as the UK’s leading academic research centre, and lead the world at isolating cancer-related genes and discovering new targeted cancer drugs. The ICR’s unique partnership with The Royal Marsden and ‘bench-to-bedside’ approach allows us to create and deliver results in a way that other institutions cannot. Together the two organisations are rated in the top four cancer centres globally.

As a college of the University of London, the ICR also provides postgraduate higher education of international distinction. It has charitable status and relies on support from partner organisations, charities and the general public.

The ICR’s mission is to make the discoveries that defeat cancer.
